It was a magical moment when we met, one year ago (actually right this minute as I type)! Right now, I held you for the first time. The bond was immediate; stronger than expected, more than I had hoped for, an answer to millions of prayers. You were absolutely perfect in every single way. Peaceful, precious. Those big brown eyes melted me.
Our journey has been amazing, hasn't it?
Someday when you are standing much taller than me, I want you to know, that I love you more than I could ever love myself. I need you more than you'll ever understand.
I am so thrilled God gave us you, our little boy. Our little everything.
I can't wait to watch you protect Alex.
To play sports with your daddy.
To learn to dance with your mommy.
To surrender your life to Christ.
Be sure and watch your father. He is THE example of who I want you to become. His patience and unconditional love is real. It is unchanging. I know he will teach you so much as the years go on, and I just pray that you will look to him as your hero. He is worthy of it.
Thank you for giving me the best gift I could ever imagine. I am praying for you daily. For your future wife. I can't wait to watch you grow up to become something amazing. You already are, my love.
