A Note From Tina

I can see the man he's going to be in this photo. I love the scuffed-up knee, the slightly impatient look on his face that gives the boy away, but underneath I see the strength and the seriousness of the young man. Bringing up this boy has been so different than bringing up my girls, and we've had some struggles. What gets me through those tough times is looking through these older layouts and photos of my young son and reminding myself to remember I'm not just raising a boy, I'm raising a man.
