Where should I begin? I know you aren’t my son by blood, but in my heart you’re my son just as much as Jabari is. You’ve only been in this world for a year now and you’ve already made a huge impact in a lot of lives, especially mine. You’ve brought out a side of me that I never knew I had. A side of me that some people just don’t understand. Some people don’t understand why I treat you like my own. Then there are some people who commend me. Honestly, I could care less what they all say because I know what I’ve been doing and will continue to do is the right thing.
Growing up I’ve seen some things and been thru some things that make want to always treat you like my own flesh and blood. And to see the way the world is going makes me vow to God that I will continue to love and treat you the same way I do your brother and sister. Seeing you grow puts the same smile on my face that Jabari and Londyn did when they were babies.
You should feel special because you get three families to love. Some kids only get one. In no means am I trying to replace your father. That’s not in me. But I will be an addition to him. One thing my dad always told me, “honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God gives to the.” I’m gonna make sure you honor both of your parents.
I’m excited to see how you grow up to be. Especially at 3 and 4 when your personality starts to really come out. Keep working on that arm cause you sure are throwing things. Gonna have to put that to use in sports. So with all that being said… HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY CARSON! Dom loves you and will always love you no matter what!
Love you Son Son,
