Happy Birthday Wil


Wil always makes silly faces when we grab the camera!
































On January 26th, 1993, Wilson Lee Thompson entered the world 2 months early. He was not ready to arrive, however my body could no longer cope with pregnancy. I experienced extreme blood pressure and other health problems. On the morning of the 26th, I began experiencing seizures. I was stabilized and taken to surgery for an emergency C-Section.

Wil weighed 5 pounds, but his organs were not fully developed. "Little Wil" grew slowly. He encountered a few obstacles, but GOD was faithful to see him through each of them.

Wil is my youngest child. He is an awesome young man with a tender heart. I am blessed to call him, son! Today, I thank GOD for bringing him into my life and growing him into the young man HE created him to be.

I love you, Wil. I am "very" proud of the person you are becoming! Happy 17th Birthday!

Hugs and love,

Mom
