When We Get to Meet Our Grandson
This is a letter from my mom:
How do you begin to express how much you love a little sunshine that only comes in your life by the new technology of a web cam and words. But this little man came into our life 4 yrs ago and it has been a joy to watch each new thing he takes delight in achieving. We have never seen Griffin except by photos and the computer cam but I am thankful for each day we get to enjoy seeing him. His joys of the videos he enjoys dancing to and the singing with his own words that maybe sometimes only he enjoys. And once in awhile he will say "I love you nana" on the phone or "I love you papa". Of course he doesn't know us but I do hope that will change soon and he will really get to know and love us in person and hopefully remember that he is so very special to us. When that time comes I will be able to explain to him what a wonderful mother he has she has devoted her life to her little special "sonshine". She has been in Alaska for 15 yrs. And the last time we saw her was when she was expecting her little miracle. Of course she had no idea how her life would be blessed when she left here with her eyes full of tears as well as mine. But I knew god was going to bless her beyond her wildest dreams. I have told her for 4 yrs that that Griffin gives her the special and she gives him the needs. So therefore that is the way we look at our very special needs grandson. His life is happy and there is only two things that could work this miracle and that is god that gave him to our daughter and only he knew exactly which mom to bless, one that he gave hardness that allows her to keep going when every one else gives up, he gave her sensitivity to love him under any and all circumstances, and most of all he gave her tears that she can shed anytime she needs to whether happy or sad Griffin will always notice it's because she loves him so very much. And the second thing that makes this little man so happy is that he truly knows his mother will always be there. Hopefully the day we meet him will be soon and a very anxious one for us all. With all our love to you Griffin and of course Lora whom we also miss very much. We will have a lot of catching up to do, hopefully some long talks and some walks to the lake. The older you get the more you realize how little time you really have to squeeze in all those lost conversations and the family times . Our love unconditional, mom.
