On April 22, 2005 God gave me the best Birthday gift... my son Jeffrey. Born prematurely at 25 weeks weighing 1lb 10oz... despite all the negative prognosis, my son fought to live. Doctors said Jeffrey would be paralyzed, unable to speak and a host of mental challenges. But God said different. 14 years later Jeffrey still can bring me to tears at what he can do. I still have no clue what I am doing and how to raise this boy but I know I love him with all my heart. Happy Birthday Jeffrey. I pray that God protect you, guide you and put people (including your girlfriends & wife) who love HIM and love you. I pray HE give you wisdom and compassion and bless you to be an independent man who can take care of yourself in this world. I pray prosperity over your life and Lord thank you so much for loving me enough to give me Jeffrey. You are my heartbeat and you are my life. Happy 14th Birthday. I love you. Mommy a/k/a “Mom”😢 (Just this post took me 2 hours going through 10,725 pics and videos. I am going back to sleep!😂) #love #happybirthday #jeffrey #teenager #lovemyson #wheredidthetimego #bornwithapurpose #butgod
