I am a big fan of this boy, He is a super great kid who has overcome some pretty huge obstacles in his short life. He is bright, and serious, and did I mention so intelligent? There are so many things to love about this kid that it's hard to stop. Patrick is about to be baptized, and his mom wanted to get some photos to celebrate. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints children are baptized at age eight, because we believe that before then children are too young to understand the commitment involved; and also that they don't have need of cleansing because they are  pure. So there's a little tidbit for your thinking cap ;). It's clear from his solemn expression that this kid understands this commitment, and he is ready for it. What an exciting time!
