On a more serious note...

I want to take a moment and share a letter I have written my son. Major MAJOR trigs ahead, so please read only if you are going to do so empathetically and NOT with the intent of judgement.

I may actually lock this post because I am not looking for responses, only a venue to express my feelings.

My dearest little dino,

It's so hard to know where to start. My heart is so full of things I want and need you to know, so I guess I will start at the most logical place, the beginning.

You are so incredibly loved, Quinlon Jade. There really are no words to describe how desperately we adore you. Your father and I would die for you in an instant if it would make your life better. You have truly completed our lives in a way that we never knew was possible and have quickly become our most treasured thing. I never understood why parents do what they do and sacrifice themselves and their contentment just to see their child smile, but now I do and it's the most exquisite, pure love I have ever experienced.

You are a very special child; destined to to amazing things in your life. We have made sure that you have every thing you need to be the best you can possibly be. You represent all the hopes and dreams that life has forced us to set aside in replacement of practicality and survival. While we are not going to live our dreams vicariously through you, I feel with all my intuition that there is something very special about you and your destiny has the potential to be world changing.

I wish I knew better how to express everything that is in my head, but I can't find the right words. Please just remember this one thing. You are amazing and there are NO limits on who you can be and what you can do.

All of my love,
