Letter To Our Birthday Boy


Dearest Rayhan, 
Do you know what day is today? Today is YOUR BIRTHDAY! 
"Happy 1 year old old Birthday darling! "
And do you know what we should do today?
We should thank Allah more today.. 
Why?
Because Allah gives both of us chance to kiss , to hug each other more, to stroke your soft hair, to touch mummy's face,  to play with your brother, to laugh with daddy, to bath with mummy, to cry searching for mummy, to sleep with u , to hold you closed to my heart and hear your breath..and ..to continue breastfeed you more and more.. 
Alhamdulillah. 
Dearest Rayhan,
Our 1 year journey is so wonderful that I don't know how to put into words.. 
This early morning I was browsing through all your pictures and I cried  How time really fly! You have bring such joy to us. Thank you Rayhan.. thank you ... 
Birthday : 18th May 2013/ 11.32 am/ 2.6kgThe journey of breastfeeding you is so unforgettable.You've always tried your very best to latch on my breast and suck but you chocked. It's okay, at least you tried and never give up without knowing yourself being a Down Syndrome with a Cleft Palate. YOU DID IT!

We can never forget your very first smile..
I screamed with joy and tears
 and quickly telephoned daddy to tell him this great news!
YES, YOU DID IT!
You have went trough many occupational therapies
to make you stronger to roll over for first time.
And YOU DID IT !


People hardly understand why mommy always cry
whenever you STRUGGLED  to keep your head high and strong!
YOU DID IT!
You sit and fall backward many times just to get it right..
and YOU DID IT!

Nothing can bring us more joy than waiting for you to start your first crawl.
After 9 months..YOU finally DID IT!

Our 10 months of waiting has ended.. Thank God, you finally get your Cleft repaired!
You didn't even cry after 2 hours operation!
Rayhan, you are such a strong boy!
YOU DID IT!

Your first enjoyable meal without chocking.
Such a wonderful moment!
Yes, YOU DID IT! 

Standing is not easy..
but you've LEARNT and WORKED HARD to stand even just a second!
and YES, you've break the record yesterday for standing more than 5 minutes!
YOU DID IT !

My dear Rayhan, 
I pray hard that Allah gives us health and long life so we can continue enjoy this marvelous moment together. 
I pray hard that you will forever stay strong and never ever let anybody look down on you. Never ever let anyone sympathize you.


You've got to aim high, stay firm and believe in GOD. 

Do you know Dr. Karen Gaffney who is a long-distance swimmer, advocate, receives doctorate of human letters.  She is also having Down Syndrome.. just like you.  
You Can Do It!  Yes, YOU CAN!!

Dearest Rayhan,
Promise me.. 
Promise me.. 
Promise me..

Don't ever give up.. never ever give up hope. 



Rayhan,


My wish has granted for breastfeeding you for a year but now I wish to breastfeed you FOREVER..


Again you have make us so proud of you. Having you is like heaven.. 


Thank you Allah.. for this wonderful 1 year journey and we pray many more years to come. 


Rayhan,

Indeed you're so PERFECT!
