I could never be without you, stepson

Happy birthday, my dear stepson!

I may not have known you since the
very beginning of your life, but you
have been in my life long enough
now that I know with certainty that
I could never be without you.

I love you as if you were my own
flesh and blood, and you’ll always
be such an important part of my life.

Thank you for bringing so much
brightness to my days, with your
genuine kindness and beautiful, 
good nature.

I hope you have a fantastic birthday
today, at least as fantastic as you
are my dear son!
