But what I do know is that I truly admire you and the way you're learning to live your life.
It's not just your adventurous spirit, or the creative side very few people are privileged to see, or even the way you set goals and then go after them with courage and enthusiasm - although, of course, that's part of it.
No, I think it's more the sense of personal integrity that I'm beginning to glimpse as you've matured these past few months. As I watch you approach high school graduation and make plans for college, I'm seeing a young man that is impressing me.
I know I don't tell you that often enough and, even when I do, I'm not sure that you truly know just how much I am proud of the person that you are.
You face your relationships with generosity and honesty and your loyalty to those you care about is impressive.
It's all of these things (and more) that make me love you and admire you so very much - that make me think of you as the wonderful person I've always been proud to call "my son."
Enjoy these last few weeks of high school, Jorge. You are embarking on a whole new adventure that will thrill you, scare you, mold you, please you, disappoint you, and somehow fill you with joy and apprehension - all at the same time.
It's called Life - and it's waiting to see what you have to offer. Bring the best of yourself to the game, Son. And always know that all the support, love, and encouragement you could ever need will continue to flow from us - your family.
I love you.
