Thanksgiving, day two
For ten years I prayed for you. For ten years I longed to see your face, hold you in my arms and hear your little cries, coos, and giggles. For ten years I knew that I’d meet you someday but I had no idea when that day would be. I’ve known exactly who I was since I was a little kid. I’ve been strong and stubborn, blunt, not always kind but very loving all of my life. I’ve always been me. And yet, a little over three years ago when I met you for the first time I became someone new. I became your mom. My world was totally transformed. Who I am now has so much to do with you being here. You amaze me every day. You astonish me every day. It never seems possible to love you more then I already do and yet I love you more with each and every day. My little Abe, there will never ever be words to express how thankful I am for you.
