Happy Birthday Danny!

It was 20 years ago today.....
How fast the years go by, when you are young, you laugh at the "old" people who tell you that life goes by in the blink of an eye. Suddenly 20 years have passed in a New York minute. Like all Mom's, I remember the moment you were born, the exact moment when we were all bonded together for life. That morning, on the way to the hospital, Dad and I were so excited, a whole new future was dawning for us and you were the sun in that dawn. I must have blinked, because it's 20 years later and you are a young man. Your hand no longer is held inside my hand, by along side my hand. There were so many dreams that Dad and I had for you, but our life took a different path, so we needed to adjust our dreams accordingly. And we did, because it doesn't matter what you can or can't do, it only matters that we love you and cheer you on in every step that you take in life. Our family was strong, you have made us stronger. You have truly taught us what unconditional love is, what unending patience is, what undying devotion is. You have taught us that and so much more. We have weathered so much in these past 20 years, yet it seems like only a moment has passed, and it is only a moment. Today we are celebrating your 20th birthday, but everyday we celebrate you!
Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!
We love you!
Mom and Dad
