My sweet boy,

I always wanted to be a mom. When I found out I was pregnant, I felt excited. On the day you were born I finally knew what love at first sight was. When they placed you in my arms, I felt scared, not knowing exactly how to care for this little miracle, but my heart overflowed with joy too and I knew I would spend my life learning how to protect you and loving you. Now at 8 years old, I still have worries and fears that I may be doing something wrong, but you have also grown so much and you know so much. You are a kind, caring, sweet, loveable little man and that tells me I am doing at least one thing right. I am so proud of you and I am honored to be your mommy.

I had you young but that just means I get to know and love you longer".

Love forever,
Mom
