It's these grandsons...what's the deal...

So, I was working in the nursery today, helping out. This one little boy, 3 years old. His name was Tommy. He was nonverbal. His grandfather dropped him off. Tommy was beside himself, weeping uncontrollably. How, I don't know, but finally I was somehow able to get Tommy to allow me to hold him. He sat on my lap and relaxed enough to lay against me. I looked down at his little head and guess who I saw. Alex. I just started rocking. Here is a little nonverbal Hispanic boy, laying against me, relaxing totally, he and I, melding into one...I'm rocking as I type this...and my heart aches for my firstborn grandson. My Alex, my little quiet shadow, my heart. August is coming soon enough for me.
