This boy is 11!!! He has grown up so much over the past year--and is one-of-a-kind! His sense of humor, teasing, and all out goofiness are the best--and we laugh all the time! He is caring and considerate, he loves fiercely and is equally loyal. He is himself always--thinks, acts, speaks, and does things exactly how he wants to--and thankfully now that he is home schooled he has the freedom to do that! I love him so immensely! This past year Joe and I have really stepped back and allowed James to have more control over his life and decisions--hands down the best decision we have ever made as parents--James has proven that he is capable, strong, and intuitive about how he lives his life--he asks for guidance when he needs it, and accepts that sometimes the answer is no. I am so very proud of him and the choices he makes!
