"You don't raise heroes, you raise sons.
And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn into heroes,
even if it's just in your eyes."
~ Walter Schirra, Sr.
He answers to several different names depending on the day or his mood...
Spiderman, Batman, Tony Stark, Clark Kent, Ironman, Green Lantern.
Oh and of course Will or William.
The thing that stands out most about my youngest son is his good heart.
He also loves to build with lego's,
is a good Christian, and is a gifted athlete and dancer.
He has a curious mind and often thinks deeper than I do.
I believe that he is here to do great things.
We can't always say it's been easy but it's certainly been worth it.
There have been bumps in the road but we're happy to be
on this journey.
Without William it would have been a very different and much less exciting
It was on this day 5 years ago in a conference room in the Lakeside Hotel in Fuzhou,
Fujian Province, China, we first met him. A very scared and upset 2 year old little boy,
who first went to Grace, then Dan and about a week later came to me.
The changes in him in the past 5 years have
been nothing short of miraculous,
and for that we are thankful.
My sweet William, I love you so.
"Yours is the light by which my spirit is born;
you are my sun, my moon
and all my stars."
