What Happened to the Music?

There is music along with the slide show. I want you to hear it, because I picked the song out very specifically for my boy. I will post a link instead.
My Amazing Boy

And in case you are either a sucker, or want to see the long version of my first slideshow, here is another link!
Longer one

The very first time I heard that song, I KNEW, in my deepest heart that I needed to use that song for a slideshow. Little Man struggles every day, under burdens that would make the rest of us crumple. Instead of whining about it, this amazing young man picks up his life every single day and strives to do his best. I think of him, 8 hours old, abandoned in the hospital, his small body wracked with withdrawals, and it makes me want to weep. I watch him every day, doing his best, being a miracle, and I want to cheer. He inspires me, he motivates me beyond what I think I am capable of. He really is amazing. Enjoy.
