Our dear Ethan,
Today you turn 16 and we are exceptionally proud of the strength, courage and determination you show us every day. We see that all of your hard work during therapies is making an improvement in your comfort and progress toward recovery. This was not the path that you or we ever envisioned–yet you are paving the way and teaching us how to see the good in every day. We love you, and your brother and sister more than we can ever express. Mazel Tov on this milestone birthday. Here's to the year ahead!
