In October, we celebrated our Gotcha Day! Two years ago three lives were forever changed, we became a family. Each of us has grown in so many ways that would not have been possible without the others. If you have ever met Bradyn, you now how infectious his spirit is. It is not possible to look at him without becoming drawn to him; family, friend, or stranger...people fall in love with him. Mike and I are the blessed ones to be able to call him our son. Mike and Bradyn share a special bond that is impenetrable...it's almost as if they speak their own language and they most definitely share lots of giggles and laughs. Bradyn has become just like Mike...just the other day Bradyn said, "Hey Pop, this is how you walk". Then he proceeded to show Mike how he walked...they were identical! Bradyn looks up to Mike and idolizes him and Mike loves and adores Bradyn beyond words. Bradyn and I share our special bond as well and any concerns of attachment have been laid to rest for a long time now. Despite the fact that he is 3 years old wearing 5T clothing, he is still and will always be my precious baby. He knows how to melt my heart! I don't think any of us could imagine our lives without the others and for that we are so very grateful.
