I can hardly believe that he is 30. It wasn't that long ago that I wondered if he would ever make it to 1...but he did. How blessed I am to have been a part of his life this past 30 years. You know there once was a Doctor that told me...."he will never walk or talk". Not only does he walk and talk, he is an amazing son, brother, husband, father. He is such a hard worker. WalMart is very lucky to have him.
Derrik has taught me so much. I don't know anyone that is so quick to forgive and move on. His love is truly unconditional. He loves his cousins, uncles and aunts. I recall him telling each one of them that they were his "favorite" and he meant it. They have always been his cheerleaders in his life and for that I thank you!!!!
I am so proud of all of my kids but today I will focus on my miracle child for that is what he is. I thank my Heavenly Father for allowing me to raise this precious child - for I know that his life was in His hands.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DERRIK! I love you!!!!
