I’m so proud of the young man you have become and I want you to know how much you are loved every single day. You have sacrificed much in order for Connor to have the level of care he needs. It’s not fair. No brother, no teenager should ever have to go through what we are going through. Dad and I are doing our best to try to give you as normal of a life as we can. Thankfully, you have a great group of friends who are always there for you too. And they are all kind to Connor, always making sure to say “hi” or talk to him for a while when they come over. Friends like that are a special gift. There are so many things I love about you. You are a goofball. You love music and all things outdoors. You are good at everything you try. You overcome every obstacle life puts in your path. You don’t care what other people think about you. You are smart, handsome, and have a kind heart. You know when I need a Jake hug. You make the best mac and cheese. 🙂 You are a wonderful son, brother, and friend. No matter how busy or stressful or crazy life gets, I am always here for you. I LOVE YOU!
