Shaun Taylor, 8 Years.

Eight years ago today, our world was forever changed with the birth of our sweet baby boy, Shaun.

As cliche as it sounds, I truly did not know it was possible to love someone so deeply until I became a mother. We think that we are here to teach our children, and yet it seems sometimes they have so much more to teach us. My son has taught me about compassion, strength, perseverance and most importantly, unconditional love. The last eight years have been quite an adventure, and I could not be more proud of the kiddo my Shaun has become.

Here is a brief look at Shaun at 8 years old.
