You were always in ahead of your time. Your father and I were not together very long when I became pregnant, and you arrived five weeks before your due date. You always spoke clearly, you behaved so maturely, and were so tall that very few people believed us when we would tell them your actual age. You always possessed an ability to reason, and you already read fluently and have a vocabulary of a high schooler. Part of the reason that you are an only child is that we know that any sibling of yours would never measure up, because you are perfect; however, it saddens me greatly to not be able to give you a sister or brother. You are kind, you are enthusiastic, and you bring smiles to all who meet you, but especially me. Your whole demeanor is so lovely and innocent that I cannot help but smile at everything you say and do.
