Nine Years Ago Today . . .
I stared into the eyes of an angel for the first time.
Understood, a little better, the point of my existence.
Felt complete, to that particular time.
My heart was in my arms.
I experienced feelings and emotions I never thought possible.
We became a family.
I became a mother for the first time.
The one I had been praying for had finally arrived.
I fell in love with my husband all over again in a completely new way when I saw him holding our son, and I saw the look in his eyes.
I thought life could not possibly get any better than that moment.
