He was born way too early – 3 months premature weighing only 2.8 pounds
Then he was FIVE – last surgery to repair his esophagus…first solid meal…removal of feeding tube
Then he was TEN – struggling in school but surviving…facing all odds..learning new things
Then he was FIFTEEN – a teenager…tall and lanky…still unsure of himself
Then he was TWENTY – a young man…a high school graduate…first job
Today he is TWENTY ONE
HE GREW UP WAY TOO FAST!
