Happy Birthday William!!!

Happy Birthday William!  You are one of the sweetest people I have ever had the honor of knowing.  You are truly genuine thru and thru.  You are honest, kind and full of compassion.  It has been a privileged to call you my son.  You have been one of the greatest blessings of my whole life and I am so grateful that God has allowed us to raise you and enjoy you every day. It is hard for me to remember that you started out so small.

But yet it seems like not that long ago you were so young.

I could always count on your even temper and obedience no matter where we went or how many children I had in our home.

Even though you were bothered by sensory things and could not communicate for years, you always tried your best to be happy and patient.

When you were diagnosed with autism, audio processing disorder and developmental delays, I felt like crying... but when I looked at you, I knew you were amazing and loved you so much just the way God made you!

You slowly found your voice, even though you did not learn to speak so we could really understand you till you were six.

You are a cookie cutter of your dad!  You are both so simular in your looks, ways and personality.

You have always had such genuine love for all your siblings.

 As soon as you were big enough to do anything around the house or farm, you wanted to help.

You love animals, especially the companion dogs you have had over the years.

You enjoy your car and anything mechanical.

I love your joyful and playful ways.
Almost every time you walk by me during the day, you give me a hug.  I get at least 20 hugs a day! And treasure every one!

I'd say  you are growing up so fast but that time is gone!  You are grown up!  Sort of???

Your animation and art work are truly a gift and amazing! (His Youtube channel is LegoBro4 Studios)
The Mothers Day Card you made for me!
You designed the picture you wanted on your birthday cake and your very talented Aunt "S"  made it for you!!!  Thank you so much Aunt "S"!!!
We all love you so much William!  We wish you the happiest 19th Birthday ever!!

Galatians 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.


Love Always,
Dad, mom, Stephen, Antonio, Carolyn, Zeke, Elizabeth, "B", "T", Baby "K" and Baby "A"
