This is amazing! Ross was a little bit younger than my son is now when I started reading your blog. Hard to believe that cute kiddo is all grown up! A very very Happy Birthday to Ross. Good job on raising that nice young man, Karen!

My son is 8 and I pray that I am able to say the same things about him as he gets older. Most days I worry that I am just not doing enough of the right things to help him along. He is amazing though and I need to have patience with both of us and faith in God's hand in raising him. Thanks for sharing this. A very, very happy birthday to Ross and "job well done!" to you!

Happy 21st Birthday Ross. What a wonderful job you have done raising a amazing young man.
How wonderful to get this in writing!!! And so hard to believe when they start to grow up, where does the time go.

He's a good boy. You raised him right. :)


Happy Biryhday Ross you have an amazing mother who wanted the best for you even though she was a child herself. You have done yourself proud Karen as parenting is hard let alone when you are a single 19 year old. I take my hat off to you. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

robin... you know the one...

Thanks for sharing your boy with us... he is one year older than my Trevor and so many times I feel like you are telling my story. I totally would sit and feel sorry for myself for not making the trip too. But... don't sit and sulk too long. You have too many blessings to share with the world, and Ross would want you to carry on... cuz you raised him that way.

Happy Brithday Ross!! I can't believe he is 21, I first started reading your blog when he was 13 or 14.
Thanks for sharing him with us.


Love it! Happy Birthday Ross and....Karen you are such an inspiration!
