Today is Zane's birthday. We had our breakfast cupcakes and presents before his dad picked the kids up for the weekend. My former preemie, born at 28 weeks and just 2 lbs. 13 oz., is 6 years old. Although everything beyond breathing still seems like a bonus, he is so very much more than that. He is smart, has big brown eyes with lashes to die for, has a scientist's curiosity about the world, loves dancing, pepperoni, and reading, and hugs all his friends.
Zane will grow up with a lot of stuff on his plate. He is a child of divorce being raised by a single mom who has Multiple Sclerosis. Doesn't that sound like the background of a future President, Olympic athlete, or Nobel Prize winner? :-)
Happy Birthday, Zane.
