Shadow Shot Sunday - Birthday 23

First week, 1990
University of Hartford, 2009
9th Birthday, 1999
UofH Grad, December 2012
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back as Cameron celebrates a birthday today - 23 years have occurred since this day in 1990 at 8:52 AM, and our son was born. In fact, the day before was Thanksgiving Day and we were and are thankful for the gift...even though it is his birthday, no celebration today - since he received a nice job offer as a software developer in New York City, he is meeting with apartment brokers in Brooklyn to secure a place to live...As parents, we are quite happy. So a pictorial retrospective is in order. Once a helpless babe, he has grown up with a sense of values, honesty and knowledge. So we celebrate not just a birthday,  but also his continued success...

Hi Bro,
Nice to see you and your family growing.

Wow! Cameron is a big man now, huh? Tears in my eyes, thinking the good old days (reminsching the my past).

God Bless You All.

Dear Ralph & Patti CONGRATULATIONS!!
It is hard to believe looking back at pictures what tiny human beings our kids once were and what events have happened through the years.
It gives us such pride and peace to know we have done our best and our children have turned out (eventually?LOL) to be wonderful people .. can we sit back and relax a little now? LOL
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and Happy Birthday to your son .. 23 is still so young yet?
Joy : )

Congratulations! All of you!
I'm so glad a young man got a good job - we can hear too many sad stories youngsters without job, whatever education. I'm happy for you.
