Thank you for giving me the gift of your son.
For giving him life, bringing him to earth, and raising him right.
For feeding, clothing, and loving him.
For training him to be honest and honorable and hard-working.
For giving him strength, which is the meaning of his name.
For all the little things and the big
and then for letting him go
and welcoming me into your lives.
It has been 27 years since you became parents.
Thank you for welcoming the life I hold so dear.
Happy birthday, Brian. I love you.
