11 years ago today our fourth boy was born. He tried to arrive 6 weeks earlier than he did, making his mother spend a month in the hospital on bed rest. I'm not sure that I have had a more difficult four weeks in my life. We were so happy we he finally came. Brenden is a gifted artist and writer. He has a poem being published in a book called Brilliance. It is a publication of The America Library of Poetry. Brenden's poem was also entered into a contest that will be decided on September 30th. If he wins, he will get a $500 Savings Bond. It will be interesting to see what he does with the next 11 years.
We love you Brenden.
