Happy 8th Birthday Dominic!

8 years ago, my son Dominic came into our lives.   He was 10 days late… and ended up being delivered via c-section since I already one.    He is a delight and loves all kind of animals – small or big.   Well almost all kinds…. check the video to see why I am saying this!

Love you buddy.

I pray that God be with you every day of your life.   May you continue to follow him daily and learn to listen to him.
