The Love of a Child...



I always dreamed of the day I would be a parent and would get to love my child. It is an amazing feeling the love that a parent has for their child. I cannot imagine being able to love more than I love my little Minnow. But what I didn't bargain for is the love he has for me and the way it melts me down to my very core. His eyes say it all. Those eyes are going to break hearts and heal pain. He is the light of my life and the way he loves me and needs me are immeasurable. The smile he has for me in the morning. The game we play of pointing out the animals in his room before I lift him out of his crib. The way he buries his face in my leg or shoulder when he is shying away from someone he doesn't know. The way his tears stop the minute I pick him up and whisper in his ear. Minnow you have made so many of my dreams come true...I only hope I can help you make yours come true.

D, Beautiful words. Thank you also for the update that I emailed you about.

And look at little Minnow running in the sun. He is so tiny still. Just like Bec.

I was thinking after I read this- how beautiful, both Minnow and your words about him. Thanks for sharing about your moments with him. It makes me anxious for ours to get here!

I'm so happy for you. I remember thinking, when you were waiting in agony for his referral, what a treat you would be in for in becoming a mom (-:
