Today, you're 5 years old.
When they told us, when I was 17 weeks pregnant, that you would be born with half a heart, they only gave us survival statistics to five years.
So, today, to have you defy all odds and embrace life so fully, and to turn 5.
For once, I am speechless.
(That doesn't happen often.)
So, today, I got nothing.
Just happy tears and pride.
Happy fifth birthday, our sweet boy.
We could not love you more.
Love, mommy and daddy
