Special Guy

I recently had a conversation with my brother Drew about premature babies and what a blessing it is, that in this day if a baby comes prematurely we can still have them with us in this life. Colin was born 6 weeks premature. He weighed 5 lbs. 7 oz. He spent the first month of his life in a hospital, hooked up to machines and mostly being fed through tubes. While this was a difficult experience, I realize that many parents go through similar experiences without such a wonderful outcome. Colin is now almost 9 months old. He is tall for his age and has more than caught up now in his weight. He eats like a champ, I can't believe how much food this kid can put away. He has the sweetest disposition and has the biggest smile that makes everybody laugh. I know Colin is a very special boy. He is an angel sent from heaven, and I know he has important things to do in this life. What a blessing! Thank you, Drew, for your kind and thoughtful words that remind us what a special boy we have.
