post script: seventeen years ago today, my baby brother was born. i cannot believe how quickly time has passed. he truly has grown into a handsome, generous, intelligent, hard working young man. and i could not be more proud of him. although i am one hundred percent sure he doesn't peruse this little forum, i want to extend my happy wishes. may your day be filled with love and luck. and may you enjoy many, many more! in big ways... xo.
