This is the day that God has made. On this day 19 years ago I was given my Greatest gift of all...my son and🤴🏾was born, Farad J. Mills. “I never knew Love Like this before”! Many questioned me about having a child at the age of 45. They questioned how I was gonna balance my career, and raising a special needs child (#DownSyndrome). Having my child saved my life! God doesn’t make mistakes, and he Blessed me a smart, intelligent, funny, charming, charismatic, handsome, and wonderful young man that is so awesome. He is a author and straight “A” student in school. He lights up a room when he is in it. Yes there are challenges in life when being a parent. This is a challenge that I wouldn’t change for nothing in the world. Today I celebrate my sons born day. However, he doesn’t know how much he has fulfilled my life. Today, (just like everyday😁) is about you my son and 🤴🏾. Happy Birthday 🥳 Farad, from your #1 fan in the world. #LoveYourKids make everyday their Birthday! Be the hope they hope for. #GodIsLove
