“Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you would have. It's about understanding that he is exactly the person he is supposed to be. And that, if you're lucky, he just might be the teacher who turns you into the person you are supposed to be.” - Joan Ryan,
I love him so much. Every inch, and every detail. Sometimes I can't believe that he belongs to me. I am so fortunate. Contemplating how he has changed my life, how he needs me, and how I need him - it overwhelms me. Brennen, you are amazing, and I am so proud to be your Mom.
