Yes. We officially have a thumb-sucker.
For the past few years, I have devoted Tuesdays to my sis-in-law Kristen and my nieces (Madeline, Abigail, Lauren) and nephew (Gabriel).
Keeping the tradition alive, I have continued to spend Tuesdays with Kristen and the gang. But, who is the new center of attention...
Max of course!
If you have been following this blog, you will know that I am a birthmom. And my son, Michael, turns twelve years old today. Time sure does fly.
Today is a day of rejoicing. I feel that I have so many things to be thankful for. I am thankful for Rocke and Dee, Michael's amazing parents. I am thankful for his older sister, Morgan.
And more than anything, I am thankful that I can rejoice with Max in my arms today. My sweet, sweet little baby boy. The baby I have longed for and prayed for and wept for.
I know all too well the sacrifice Emily, Colton, and their families made. For us. For Max. Twelve years ago I made the same decision.
This is a day I never, never forget.
Happy Birthday Michael!
