Today I had a great time at my twin grandson's birthday party. It is wonderful to see their growth and development. You see, they were born premature. They weighed just a fraction over two pounds at birth. There was a time when their life was touch and go. But thanks to science, they enjoyed their third birthday today. You would never know that they fought so hard for life.
Their birthday party was like many kids party. Lots of grandparents, uncles, aunts, and one great grandmother were in attendance. Gifts were plentiful and watching the kids reactions was priceless. My son wondered how long they would have interest in all the toys, before they started looking forward to Christmas. I had to give my son a reality check and remind him how many kids don't have loving parents able to dote on them. Science might have given them life, but loving care has made them into such wonderful kids.
When I am King, I won't be able to guarantee every child a loving support system, but I wish I could.
