Happy Birthday Sam!

Sam,

You came into my life one year ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about you ever since. You see, even though you are my nephew, I think of you as a part of me: maybe it’s the way you look just like my sister, the way you make me think of the past and the future mixed together all at once, or the happiness that I feel because you bring so much joy to the family, but I think of you like my son.

Happy birthday Samuel Preston Lerer, I love you.

Thank you to Susan and Josh who brought you into this world and for all the love and hard work you put into Sam’s first year of life. I love you guys.

I just stopped by your blog to see if you made any new entries and Boy, Did You! We miss and love you so much, Jennifer. Thank you for always being so thoughtful.
