Our dear André has turned three years old. Where did time go?
They were right. Days are long but the years are short.
Even if André and I have been spending time together from the day he was born, except when he’s in school for four hours in the day, it still feels like not enough time.
So I’ve made a commitment to document his life as much as I can.
And here are some of the things we’ve captured of André from the days leading to his birthday. Our celebration this year was quite different from the last two as we’re on a lockdown due to COVID-19. But we still thoroughly enjoyed it.
This video is FUN! André is just such a funny, sweet, smart, perceptive, helpful, and chatty kid. We love seeing him grow like us, and at the same time have his own personality.
Check this video out!
And here’s how we celebrated his turning three.
The #MightyMateo Legacy lives on.
Our little Mateo was highly involved in our efforts to fight online sex trafficking of children in the Philippines during his seven months of life. We believe that he'd love for us to continue this legacy.
#MightyMateo's parents document their journey through grief towards healing.
