My son Brooks. He is the most beautiful creature inside and out. As soon as he entered our world, he was so perfect we were scared to hurt him. We did everything but wrap him in bubble wrap to keep him safe. I will never forget the first time he hit his head pretty bad where it ended up being a knot. Brent and I both cried. I felt like a failure as a mom that he actually fell and hurt himself. It took a long time for me to realize that I have to let him get hurt to learn. I cannot protect my baby boy from everything in this crazy world. As Brooks gets older, I have recognized that he wants to protect himself. He is so cautious of everything around him. He is a very special little boy. It doesn’t matter where we go, he is waving at every stranger he sees. He always picks the people who he knows may need a little pick me up. The man eating lunch by himself or the baby crying. He has a gift of helping people feel good and once you feel his love…. YOU NEVER WANT TO LET IT GO.
