A Surprise Party!!!!

On Sunday, we will celebrate my little brother's birthday.  Age 50!!  This is a celebration beyond anything one can truly imagine.  Why??  Because when he was probably six months old, and when the doctors told my parents that he was mentally retarded and that he wouldn't get past the age of 6 mentally, and that he probably wouldn't live past the age of 30, we took that as fact.  It's nice to know that doctors can be wrong sometimes. 

Although he doesn't speak words like you and I, he communicates pretty darned good.  And he so loves when his brothers and sisters and others he knows get together in one place. 

So, yeah... we're celebrating my kid brother's birthday.  We're celebrating big time!!!

If I may piggy back onto my lovely big sister's post:
Just a question; Have you ever had someone love you unconditionally? We would like to think that our kids, our parents, our siblings or our significant others love us without condition but if you examine that closely I think you will find conditions. Our baby brother loves us without condition and that love is like no other. When I was a kid I heard about Kevin being a gift from God and my thought was that God can keep his gifts. As I have grown older I am grateful every day for this gift that God has bestowed on our family. I know when I am with him that I am loved in a way that no one else in this world loves me and I feel blessed. So I thank God for the gift of Kevin and I wish Kevin a birthday filled with all the blessings in return. Thanks Peg for posting.
