Dear Michele-

Since February 2000, your life changed in ways you could never have expected. Balancing family, working with special needs kids at a local elementary school and dealing with the challenges of aging parents would be a handful for most people, but add a child with Asperger's to the mix and you never know what hat you'll be wearing at any given moment. I could go on and on about how proud I am of you and what an awesome mom you are, but let me just end here by saying I love you with all my heart and thank you for being you.
