I can’t believe that it was thirteen years ago today that I held your 7 lbs 1 oz little newborn form in my arms for the first time. Thirteen years ago today I ran through all of the emotions common to new mothers…. anxiety, excitement, anticipation, then the ultimate emotion of all… a love that seems impossible in its strength. Thirteen years ago today I watched your dad cry as you were delivered and I felt the rush of pain and joy that can only be described as miraculous. I was blinded to your fraility and temporary medical issues and my eyes were filled with amazement. Thirteen years ago today our lives were changed forever, and the prayers of two parents became a reality. God blessed us with you.
Thirteen years ago today.
