This is our sunshiney boy.
He's a boy who has a bit of Africa in his blood.
The one who dances at the slightest drum beat.
The one with the open blue eyes and big warm heart.
The one with the happy, throaty chuckle.
The one who gives soft cuddles with squishy hands.
This boy loves to be close to us, and to share everything of himself with us.
He's the one who still brings tears to my eyes when I see the scar on his forehead. Everyone says that kids bounce. This scar reminds me that they don't.
"He came to bring gladness and joy to the earth," and he does.
If you come across him, hold him with all of your heart. He's generous, and kind. He's lovely, this boy who is now 5.
