Remember When: Miracles

It's hard to believe that just less than four years ago this little guy came into our lives.
This photo was taken last fall when he was three. This month he turns four.
He was premature.
He's a miracle, our hope and our love.
I made this for his mother from a photo taken by my daughter and a poem written by my friend.
So much love came together to make this piece of art. Mixed emotions, mixed love together in a mixed-media piece.
Happy Birthday precious boy.
Memoir Prompts:
What miracles have you experienced?
Do you remember your first eye appointment?
Have you ever won a trophy or medal?
Do you keep greeting cards forever or pitch them after a short amount of time?
Do you speak a second language? Would you like to learn one?
Have you ever looked at the stars through a good telescope?
Do you remember having a milk man or other delivery person?
