My beautiful baby boy

Dear Son,

Pregnant

I was 18, scared and all alone

I had so many thoughts and questions

Racing through my mind

Would I be a good mom?

Was I ready?

What if I can’t do this?

Maybe adoption would be best

What would you look like?

What if I mess up?

January 21st, 2012 I finally made up my mind

I knew in my heart what the right thing to do was

I decided to keep you

I couldn’t imagine my life without you

I could really do this

February 10th, 2012 my life took an unexpected turn

I lost one of you forever, I wasn’t sure how to think

Act nor feel

But I knew I had to stay strong for you

You were still growing in my stomach

I was more determined than ever to meet you

Love you unconditionally

Teach you and watch you grow

August 2nd, 2012

I watched as you entered into this world

8:52 pm I could never forget the time

You are so perfect

All the pain was worth it

As I hold you, I make a promise

One that I never intend to break

I’ll be there to guide you

Encourage, love and uplift you

Cheer you on every step of the way

It’s you and I against all odds

Today, December 20th, 2018

You are healthy

Handsome As ever

Personality bigger than life itself

I can’t wait to see you achieve all your dreams

I think back to the very moment and cry

Knowing I made the right decision

I needed you to come into my life and change me for the better

I’ll always love you to the moon and beyond

Love, Mom
