To The Happening Dude on your 18th birthday.
There are not enough words to express how grateful we are that you wanted to come live with us. There are not enough words to express how proud you make us and how much joy you've brought to our family since you've become a part of it.
Through most of your life, the adults who have been in charge of loving, cherishing and nourishing your unique and caring spirit have let you down, but you've flourished in spite of it. You have so many special gifts and so much potential.
Please know that we couldn't love you more if you had been born to us.
You're OUR guy.
Happy 18th, you precious boy.
