It is so hard for me to believe that I am a mom to a ten year old. It seems like just yesterday I was calling Dad to tell him to come home to drive me to the hospital. You are the child that made me a mom. I remember the first time Dad looked at you and he started to cry, (though he would hate that I shared that).
You a a great son and an even better brother. I cannot imagine anyone else as my oldest child, you fit the role perfectly. It is amazing for me to watch you with your brothers and sisters and see the special relationship you have with each of them.
You are growing into such a wonderful boy. I love how you are always kind to others and think of other feelings. I love how you always strive to include everyone. Teachers have always said how you are friends with everyone.
Jared you have a wonderful spirit and I am going to try harder to be a better example for you. Though I may not tell you often enough I a proud of you every day and love you more with each passing moment.
