My hero

Sepia eye

You arrived early, eager to see the world, I suspect. It was a difficult birth, we were both so unwell, and you were tiny, but I knew you’d be a fighter…and you were.

We went through a lot.

But, these years with you have been filled with untold joy.

You never cease to amaze me with your infectious cheerfulness, your sense of humour, which is way beyond your years, and your ability to give love. You have values and so much compassion, even at 14, which makes me so proud. You have taught me things no-one else possibly could, and for all this I want you to know, that you are my hero.


For my son.
