My baby is turning 21

Sunday, July 18, 2010

Of course I have always loved him.  Of course.  Loved him like my life depended on it, because perhaps it does.

It is the mother's right, and purpose.

Happy Birthday, J.

Watching our children grow up is a bittersweet experience, isn't it. I hope your son has the best birthday ever.

It's glorious and heartbreaking in equal measures, watching our children grow up.

Happy birthday to your amazing son! We have heard so much from you about him and he sounds like an incredible individual. Hoping he has an unforgettable 21st!

I hope your son has a lovely birthday. I just finished reading Emma Donoghue's 'Room' which based on your words: 'Loved him like my life depended on it, because perhaps it does' made me think you might like this book about a mother and son...

My son turned 26 last week, and I have loved knowing who he is - and seeing who he's become - at every step along a way. Happy birthday to your young man!

A moment ago I just finished A Slant of Sun. I am so grateful for all you shared. I will be marrying soon into a family with a mother and son who also see the world in their own special ways and two younger siblings. Of all the books and texts I have read on autism spectrum and aspergers, Slant of the Sun is the one that will make all the difference.
