Happy birthday Charlie

12 years ago at 7-55pm my son Charlie was born. Our entire world was turned upside down when we were told he was seriously ill and he would probably not survive the night. 
We had him in our lives for 9 1/2 years.
I miss him every single day and my heart aches so much. 
This post is scheduled as I know I would be unable to write this tonight. 
I would like to share a few photos of him 



Charlie at 6 weeks


Charlie's 4th birthday

Happy Birthday Charlie buckets,
Love and miss you every day.

Kat,

You are so brave and a really beautiful person.

I hope your day is filled with bright memories of your boy. Some people would be so afraid to love and commit their heart to a child who was not guaranteed even one night on earth-- your love for him runs so deep...such an encouragement to others, to love recklessly and fully.

Thank you for that.
God bless and keep you.

God bless you and your family as you deal with such a tragedy hun. My heart goes out to you and all your family. I can't even begin to imagine the pain you must feel. Charlie was obviously so loved and these pictures you so graciously shared show the immense love Charlie had for all of you; I can see it in his eyes. To share this event with all of us is a testament to the love you have for him and the strength Charlie gave you in his short time here on earth. Your Charlie walks with angels and he is with you every single day, continuing to give you the strength you need to persevere. Happy Birthday Charlie!
Feel my arms around you giving you big hugs Kat.
