A Christmas We Will Never Forget

First Christmas tree with Dad and son...

First Christmas tree with Dad and son...


That little blue-eyed boy, at eight years old, was so small for his age,

Adopted then, a new life to begin, it was now time to turn life's page.

My class was small, but he filled it up, and was there most every day,

Despite his acts and wildest behavior, so plain, he was here to stay.

Bun-bun and our son...

Bun-bun and our son...


Over the years as time has so flown, memories still linger, to be near,

That special Christmas our boy came to us, we'll always hold so dear.

A part of our lives, he's held in our hearts, our child of special needs,

Made life complete, when him to greet, this rewarding our best deeds.

A painting just for Dad and his son...

A painting just for Dad and his son...


My best efforts I gave, this child to raise, our home of loving ways,

His mother so gave, her tender care, best values, so full of praise.

A happy life, to be given every chance, this now was his to share,

As in return he gave new lives, our grandchildren, everyone so fair.

Blessings at Christmas...

Blessings at Christmas...

I have to share this special poem I have written to honor our son. He passed away a few years ago as a result of an accident, but will always remain in our hearts. Christmas was his very special time. Blessings to all at Christmas. whonu
