Eighteen years ago I held him in my arms for the first time. I marveled at how perfect he was and my heart overflowed with love for him. Becoming his momma was my dream come true. I loved taking care of his needs and watching him learn new things. At times I felt like we were growing up together. He has taught me so many things about life and myself. It hasn’t always been easy but I am so thankful for the memories we share and the lessons we learned along the way. I hope he always looks back on his childhood and remembers a mom that loved him dearly.
