a distant time
Once...a VERY long time ago, Jonathan was a little boy.
He liked to be near me, he liked to hug me and sing with me.
Then he grew up.....and hormones hit. Just because he's mentally retarded does not mean he (or his family!) escapes the ravages of hormones on a teenage boy's life....Being almost 18 is a curse....but this, too, shall pass......
It helps me to look back and remember just how darn wonderful he was. I still love him this much. He's just not as cuddly now....I miss that time. It certainly makes me appreciate Adam's sweetness all the more...
boys grow up faster...anyone ever notice that?
