I write you this letter because now and forever you will always be, My Beautiful son.

My Beautiful Son

When you were born I was so happy. It was an easy labour, and a very quick birth
I looked at your downy mop of silver blond hair, and those eyes, deep blue, and I was so overwhelmed with love for you, and all these years later, I still am. Your helplessness and vulnerability stirred all my instincts, and I knew if I had to, I would lay down my life for you.

Well that is what every mother thinks. The mother child bond is so intense, it binds you for life, and it’s a love that never dies, enduring good times and bad times. We were to go through plenty of them, but we made it to the end, my beautiful son.

When I realised that you were different, that you preferred your world to mine, I wept, but that did no good. I tried to make you want to enter my world, as a family we gave you love, we played with you, we taught you to walk, we made you lift your head up, and enter our world.

As a mother, I nursed you when you were ill, I went to hospital with you every time you were really bad, I did what any mother does for her child, and one day you smiled at me, and that was the happiest day of my life, to see you respond. Maybe you had finally decided that my world wasn’t that bad.

Your health was so poor, you had so many difficulties to over come, the doctors just shook their head sadly, but I fought back the tears, and made up my mind, that for however long I had got you, i would do my very best for you. I did so want them to be wrong.

Well 39 years later, I still have you. Your health is much better, you are happy, and you enjoy life. You are content to enter my world some of the time, and I have learnt to accept that you need to be in your own world sometimes, and I respect that. I wept many tears for you my son, tears of anguish that you could never lead a full life, get married and have children, and be independent.

But your smile got me through, and your happy nature. You have had so much to put up with, but you have defied the doctors, and come out the other side of it all. I am so proud of you, if you are happy with life, then so am I, my beautiful son!

with all my love from

Your Mum xxxxxxx

Beautiful words that can only come from the one person that loves unconditionally, a mother.
