One Year Ago Today.....

One year ago today I received a phone call that would change my life....
One year ago today I heard the words "we have a baby boy for you"....
One year ago today I saw a picture of your face for the very first time....
One year ago today my hopes and dreams of one day having a child of my own were fulfilled....
One year ago today I became a mother....
One year ago today I was excited, scared, laughing and crying....

Maddyx, as I remember this very same day just one year ago, when we found out that you would soon be a part of our lives forever, I cannot believe what a difference a year makes.  And just how far we've come.  Today, I held you in my arms and we slow danced together in the living room as I quietly sang in your ear.  While I sang and we danced, you so peacefully rested your head on my shoulder and drifted to sleep in my arms.  These are the moments that I cherish more than anything in the world and never want to forget.  Thank you for these moments.  These moments are ones that only you and I can share. 

And one day, if you choose to be a parent and have a child of your own, I wish for you to have this very same moment with your child, and to feel the very same love for that child that I feel for you.

Thank you for choosing me to be your Mom. I am the luckiest Mom in the world. I am forever changed because of you. I love you so very much. I will never forget this day. Ever.
