On October 24, 2008, my family and I were blessed with a very special little boy! God gave us Ty, and it is amazing how he has touched our lives in so many ways. He has always has a smile that lights up the whole world! The day he was born, my father-in-law passed away. Our seven year old made the comment that, "Papa got to see Ty before we did, because they passed each other as Papa was going to Heaven!" It's amazing what kids will say. I think that is one of the many reasons why Ty always smiles.
