11 Years Ago Today

11 years ago today – I held a baby boy in my arms for the very first time.

I smoothed his full head of dark hair out of his brown eyes.

I cuddled him close and sang him the hymn that would become “his” song.

I didn’t realize how much you could love a child, until I had one.

Thank you, B10, for making me a Mummy.

Happy 11th Birthday.

    Happy Birthday, sweet boy. I love you very, very much – and I know that will never compare with how much your Mummy loves you, but I do love you more than you know! ~Malenki
