I've told the story of Mr. Yorks birth many times before with great detail explaining the miracle he truly is. And while his birth and weeks after were a powerful showing of God's healing and love, his life has also been a testimony to his goodness. I wish I was more like my first baby. York wakes each morning with a beautiful outlook for the day. He doesn't give up when things get tough and always reminds others that they can do it with God's help. He has a generous nature and will share MOST all of the time. He listens to what he is told and always thinks about his response (something I have a difficult time doing as an adult). My best friend once said he was an old soul and I would have to agree. He sees things differently than most his age... He is a critical thinker and his responses often blow my mind. He has so much love to give and is constantly saying "momma I love you" or "momma do you know how much I love you". He has a tender heart that sometimes leaves him vulnerable. His heart aches for others if they are in tears or upset. He tries to make things better at any cost. He doesn't understand why we can't adopt all children who don't have families. He has a phenomenal memory and doesn't forget a thing! He is smart. He is kind. He is funny. He is incredibly patient... tested daily by his brothers who want to be just like him. What a wonderful role model. His spirit is pure and comments always hysterical. I'm a lucky mommy and can't imagine life with out my first baby. He brings me so much joy that my heart explodes each time I see that smiling face complete with tiny dimple. York you have taught me the value of family and importance of one more minute in your embrace. I cherish these things and Thank the heavens from the bottom of my heart for the gift you are.
