Happy 20th Birthday William!!!!

A very heartfelt and happy birthday, to you our son, William!

You were a surprise in our life.  A honeymoon pregnancy!
You were quiet and calm from the beginning.
One of the easiest babies we have ever had.  Everyone loved you.
Always so content and brought joy to those around you!
Even though you had many autism related were always so happy.
A wonderful brother to all the children that have ever been in our home!
Always willing and helpful.
We could not have asked for a better son.
You please me every day.
Your one of the most genuine and sweet people I know.
 You have grown into such a wonderful young man.
You have the same kind heart as your dad!  Carbon copies of each other!
Even though you don't feel well a lot of the time, you have always helped me in whatever I have asked of you.
You melt my heart when I see your tenderness with the youngest children.
I just can't believe you are 20 this year!  You planned your whole day and dinner meal yourself.  Aunt "S" made the cake you designed!  She did a wonderful job!
You liked it so well, you carefully cut each piece around Capt. Am. first!

I see your heart to serve God daily in all you do.  I am so pleased and blessed to call you our son.   I say this from the bottom of my heart.  You have faithfully lived 20 years, honoring your mother and are a true gift from God.

Romans 12:1-2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Love, Dad, mom, Stephen, Antonio, Carolyn, Zeke, Elizabeth, Billy, Timothy, Kinsley and Baby "A"  


  1. What a touching and heartfelt post. It must have made you feel a little teary eyed writing this. : ) Your William reminds me of our Matthew... very sweet and kind. It was nice to see this post, I was just thinking of you about 15 minutes ago wondering how you were doing (and Elizabeth). Was William's birthday yesterday? Elisabeth's is today but I'm not too quick as you are about getting the post up. : ) Happy Birthday William. You are such a good young man. We hope to meet you all one day! Lots of love to you all.

    1. Thank you. My birthday was on July 5th. Tell your daugher happy birthday. It would be nice to meet you too.

  2. Oh Susan! You always post a picture of William that just grabs my heart! Last year I think? it was William and Antonio. This year the picture of William and Tim! Oh my! A picture says a million words!
    Happy Happy Birthday William! You have blessed everyone in your family by being such an honorable God fearing young man! Love and (((HUGS))) from the Archers in MN :o)
