My path to mommy hood started with a miscarriage, then a difficult pregnancy resulting in 7 weeks of bed rest and a premature little girl. On September 7, 2004, my baby girl was born a month early, via c-section. I was scared that she wouldn’t be healthy, and didn’t feel comfortable until I held her in my very own arms.
She was perfect.
Today, she turns 8, and I couldn’t be more proud. This little girl has taught me more than I’ve taught her – about unconditional love, about seeing the beauty and good in the world, and about making friends. She’s amazing, and I get to be her mommy.
Happy birthday little girl!
