My sigh was met with a library of videos that buried me in memories.
Seconds into the first clip, I was reminded of the feist and spirit and will of my little boy’s heart.
I curled him into my arms, tucked his blonde head under my chin and basked in gratitude for the precious life sitting on my lap.
