46: August 31,2011 Dear Cody, You became a brother and our son, you grew up and grew healthy. Now that you are leaving our family, we hope you will always remember that you have a piece of us with you and you have left a piece of you with us. You have been given the greatest desire of your heart to be with your mom and for this we have joy for you. Like I told you in the beginning, no matter what happens, we will always love you, even if you can't see us. And more importantly, God always loves you. He will never forget you and neither will we. Love, Mom Lori and Dad Mike Zachary, Alyssa, Matthew and Marcus
47: AYear In Review When you came: -You had a hard time being creative and playing "stories" with Matthew and Marcus, but now you are helping direct the play and stories. We are so proud of you. -You tried to get your way by throwing temper tantrums until I threw one and you thought that was the silliest thing you had seen. You learned to use your words instead. We are so proud of you. -You came expecting us to say "yes" to everything and you would give us big crocodile tears if we said "no", but you learned we were showing love by saying "no". Then, you learned you could say "no" too and others would stop. We are so proud of you. -You would often "be a victim" when you wanted someone to stop something, but then you learned "I am not a victim, I have a choice" and you would say "please stop" and they did. We are so proud of you. -You couldn't balance and would fall over walking up a hill, but Zachary built 7 different balance beams all over the back yard at different heights.You tried and tried until you balanced on everyone of them. We are so proud of you. -You couldn't stand on one leg to ride the scooter without falling over, but you kept trying and after several days you did it. We are so proud of you. -You wanted to ride your bike like Marcus. You practiced with me running up and down the street. After 3 weeks, you learned to ride the bike without training wheels. We are so proud of you. -You would ask for water or use a high-pitched voice whenever you would get anxious, but after working with Coach Linda, you learned Butterfly Hugs, how to control your voice and recognize thirst or anxiety. We are so proud of you. -You would eat your whole plate of food in less than 3 minutes, but then you learned to pace yourself by watching Matthew and Marcus. You wanted to be healthy. We are so proud of you. -You would push to be first in line or through the door, but then you learned it's ok to go last and to open the door for others. We are so proud of you. -You didn't know how to read, but in one short year you learned to sound out your words and now you are a good reader. We are so proud of you. -You didn't know how to recieve love, but this quick review shows that you were loved and now you know for sure. You learned that we show our love everyday in our "yes's" and "no's", our hugs and kisses, our failures and our successes. We are so proud of you!
