OBSERVATION: Twelve years ago, I gave birth to the first human being that I ever loved unequivocally, unabashedly, without baggage or obligation. Micael taught me that love does not have to hurt. He is too old for his age, intelligent, smart ass, cynic, comedian, and a secret cuddler. He's slow to smile, but when he does, it's one of the most beautiful smiles I know. His trials and errors have made me worry, but I would not give them up for anything. I'm proud he gets to lead his brothers and step brothers. It's a heavy load sometimes, but he's up to the challenge. ♥ Happy birthday to my Micael.
