Andrew Barret 8/9/88

How did he go from this ...............to this ????


my son is 19 today.
Time really does fly................

And he just kept getting cuter..................


How do I explain him..........

Andrew has such a soft gentle soul. He is affectionate, never afraid to come up and hug me or hold my hand. He has always loved animals and children :}





Drew and Mandy in Montana

He can be so serious at times then other times he is goofy, full of quick wit and jokes.



He is a great big brother and the girls all love him so much...........................


As John wrote about him "He is a diamond in the rough", he is trying to find his way in the world and I can't wait to see what God has in store for him. I pray daily for him to make good decisions and to look to God for everything! It is hard having a child who is on his own now and all I can do is pray that we have taught him well enough.............

I know his life and adventures are only starting....................



I love you Drew - "One Love"
Happy 19th birthday................................
