I was a single Mom for a very long time. My two boys have been the world to me. My oldest son, Kevin (29), lives on his, he a great job in computer security and programming that he loves and is doing quite well. I'm very proud of all he has done. My youngest son, Kristopher was my special needs child he was 19 years old when he passed away in 2009 (see below), it was a sudden death that I was not prepared for and it has taken quite a toll on me. I'm finally able to start moving on as best a parent can do after something like this happens, I just take one day at a time. I really never dated much while the boys were young but has they got older I decided I deserved to have some one special in my life. In early 2006, I met a wonderful man, but I was scared to tell him about Kristopher I have had a 3 year relationship break up because the guy decided he couldn't handle my son and all the attention he required...so I was nervous but I told him upfront and he was wonderful, said he worked with children with special needs before and since I had a child like this it only meant that I was even more special than he thought I was...well, of course that touched my heart. We started seeing each other and we clicked, from day one I knew he was someone I could spend the rest of my life with. My boys loved him and he was great with Kristopher. So we have now blended our families and I have added to my family along with my two boys, I got a beautiful stepdaughter, Chelsea (19) and handsome stepson, Nicholas (16) and I'm thrilled...I always wanted a big family, I came from a family of 4 children and Daniel is one of six so we are both used to large families.
On May 31, 2009 I lost my Kristopher. He had not done well for most of this year, sick quite a bit. And his poor little body just couldn't take any more. He died suddenly from a seizure disorder. My heart is broken however the only thing helping me through this a little bit is knowing he is in God's arms now and no longer in any pain, there are no more hospitals or Doctor appointments for him. He looked so peaceful and also he no longer had that look of any disabilities, he was beautiful, of course he was always beautiful in my eyes, but he had a look of peace to him that just gave me such comfort. And now my special child is my Special Angel. God Bless you Kristopher. Mommy loves you and you will always be in my heart.
