Tyler, you have been so strong and courageous through these past 14 years of your life and have taught so many how important it is to have faith in God and only through God can we have the strength to get through all of these struggles we face in life. I am so proud to be your mom and am excited to be a part of Family Advocacy Day with you this year! Love you, Mom

As I have shared with you before, Ty, you are a most amazing young man.

"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him." James 1:12

I'm proud just to know you!
