Daniel Son is 10 Today… Some snapshots of the journey so far

Today our eldest son turns 10.

He is kind, he is clever, he is sensitive, he is sarcastic, he is sweet, he is sometimes anxious and very deep indeed.

We have had an amazing journey over the past ten years getting to know this fine young man, and are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for him.

Here’s a whole bunch of old photos…

  1. Wow, I am overwhelmed that Dan is now 10, which means that its not long till Zach will be 10 too ! I still remember that day at the beach with you guys, and I still remember holding Daniel in the hospital the when he was only 1 day old too ! Sending lots of love to your amazing young lad Dan, and to your wonderful family. Shona x x x
