Happy Birthday, Andrew!!

My baby boy is 1 today. How did that happen?? I swear it was just yesterday when I was praying for his referral and hoping to be a mom. It's amazing how fast the past 3.5 months have gone by since he's been home. I feel so happy and blessed every single day to be mom to this amazing little person. He has grown so much since he's been home---every day he learns something new and I'm astounded by that. He is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me.

Happy Birthday, Baby Boy. I love you!!!

I've been thinking so much about his First Mom and wondering how she is feeling knowing that her baby is turning one without her. I hope she knows how much he is loved---not just by me, but by everyone who knows him---and that he will be taken care of. I hope that he can meet her someday.
It is amazing to me how one woman's pain can become another woman's joy. It is a bittersweet feeling knowing that she had to go through so much heartache in order to make my dreams come true.
Andrew is a very blessed little boy---he has had three moms who love him.
Usually, I like being first. But in this case, I am happiest being third.


  1. Happy birthday, Andrew!
