My Son Mike - Graduation edition

Saturday, May 16, 2009

First I have to say THANK YOU to all of my that have responded to My Son Mike blogs. You have all been so VERY SWEET!!!!!
Second this is the second to last edition for awhile. I will probably write about Mike's birthday next week and that will be it.
Third for all of you that have supported me through this..... You will never know how much each and everyone of you mean to me.......I will never be able to thank you enough.

Mike Graduated last night with 3 other individuals and I cried like a baby. I had so many different emotions coursing through me at once that's what came to the surface and stayed. I WAS AND AM SO PROUD. The teachers, assistants and support staff were beaming almost as bright as me. It was a beautiful day filled with people who love Mike as much as I do. His big sister Morgan came and made his day. She took tons of pictures (the picture at the end is thanks to her) and threw Mike a party. Chad (his friend from the wedding) was there (he took off sick from work but we won't tell anybody). Mikes' Aunt Kris, Grandma, & Great Aunt Mary where there too. (They also threw him a party) After the speech they showed a video clip of each of the students from when they started at Lee to now. ( Mike started at age 7) Watching my child grow up before my eyes..... Now that was definitely a tear jerker. It brought back soooo many memories.... It was a WONDERFUL night.
Mike was even featured in the newspaper, after everything that happened last night to get up this morning and see my son in the paper. WOW!!!!!

    I had a son that had struggles in his young life also. He also graduated when all were not expecting it. I want you to know you are not done with your son. I hope to see more of him in your blogs. He is a great young man.
