I'm torn when I come across these old photos. It's because we're smiling that I'm confused. at first glance and without the memories of what was happening and what was ahead to come of course we would be smiling you might think. but that's because the depth of our situation at the time of this photo was for ever softened with those smiles.. we were just two kids so young and inexperienced in life's harsh lessons that all we could do was smile back to hide our tears. That's my first son in this picture he wasn't more than a week old and had already cheated death for the first time. My Amber was just a girl then she had no way of knowing how ruff our ride would get and all that would come our way. And me, Young foolish and inexperienced in the matters that mattered. I look at the young vato in this picture and I can't help but wonder how he managed. when I come across these photos and look back to those times I'm baffled that a neighborhood boy and his girl could overcome so much with no one to turn to for help or for guidance. But there was no one there. Only each other. When I look at this I see proof that Love does conquer all..
I Love you Amber Moreno. thank you for my boy hes just what I wanted, he's perfect. Thank you for never punking out and for believing in us and our family when no one else did. I will for always admire and respect your strength.
