Birthday Boy

12 years ago, our story began.

I remember this photo being taken as I held you for the first time, in awe of you, and how unbelievably incredible you were.

I remember wondering how on earth your Daddy and I had managed to create something so utterly perfect.

I remember feeling so, SO proud of myself for what I had just done.

I remember feeling terrified that I would hurt you, but also knowing that I’d die to protect you.

I remember hoping that someone would show me what to do with you.

And I remember, for the very first time, realising exactly what life was all about.

Happy birthday, my darling Boy Child.

You were born, and so was I.

I love you.

Mama.
