wow! i can't believe that 17 years ago today at 5:46 a.m. i gave birth to mY babY (my oldest). i have so many wonderfuL memories of him and with him. he is such a blessiNg in mY life. he has touched mY life and it will never be the same. if you know austin or haven't had the chance to meet him or know him you are gReatly missing out. this young man will touch YOUR life and it will too never be the same. many of you out there know that austin is very special in so many ways. you may have seen the post i did awhile back on him and his dad. if not... i will briefly tell you. he is totally blind from birth, autistic and mentally challenged. he is... tall and handsome. his voice... is like angels singing. his smile...will lighten any dark room. his arms... so comforting and touching. his "i love you" will pierce your heart forever! this is mY young man, this is mY friend, this is mY angel, he will always be...mY baby! i love you austin!!! this is a song we would sing together before he would go to bed a night. we just sang it last sundaY. wow! he still remembered.
may the road rise to meet you
may the wind blow at your back
may the sun shine warmly on your face
may the rain fall softly on your fields
and until we meet again
until we meet again
may God hold you in the palm of his hand
as you eNjoy this little video clip listen to the words of this song. i am truly honored to be this young man's mom!! i learn something new everyday from him and i am truly blessed.
