you

       wordishwednesday I am the child,

All the world waits for my coming,
All the earth watches with interest to see what I shall become.

kaishon 5Civilization hangs in the balance,
For what I am, the world of tomorrow will be.

I am the child,

I have come into your world,
About which I know nothing,

kaishon 3

Why I came I know not;
How I came I know not;
kaishon

I am curious;
I am interested.
kaishon 1

I am the child,

You hold in your hand my destiny,
You determine, largely, whether I shall succeed or fail.
kaishon 2

Give me, I pray you,
Those things that make for happiness.
kaishon 6

Train me, I beg you,
That I may be a blessing to the world.

I love him so much.

I can’t believe how blessed I am

to be Kaishon’s mom.

It is my greatest joy.

Well, he looks like a darlin' boy, that's for sure, and if all mothers felt as you do, the world would be a better place.

The depth of feeling that our children can give us is so hard to describe, isn't it?

He's a lucky, lucky boy to be so very loved.

Becky, Kaishon is so fortunate to have you for his Mom, as you are to have him for your son. It is truly a match made in heaven. I love the pictures to go with the beautiful poem. Love it and love you for being who you are.

We are all fortunate to love Kaishon even if it's just through your photo's.

I feel the same way about all my kiddo's...I suppose all kiddos. I feel so lucky to be a part of their lives, like what in the heck did I deserve to be honored with knowing them.

Love the last photo. I love his spirit.

It's wonderful to love your children so very much, to see their potential, to be able to know their love and hear their laughter, see the joy in their eyes. No one shows is, tells it better than you. Much love and hugs to you both.

This is so beautiful, Becky!! Our children are so dear and precious to our hearts, aren't they? We are forever wanting the best for them! I've missed my son who's been away from home for over three years now, working in CA ... it hasn't always been an easy road for him out there, and me, wow, talk about hard being away from him, but, I am so blessed to know that he will be coming home, not just to visit, but to stay, very, very soon!! My Ian is not as young as your Kaishon, but always, and forever, just as dear to my heart as yours is, and always will be, to you!

Blessings, my friend!
