The moment you were born I felt an overwhelming sense of empowerment, responsibility and an intense instinct to protect you. You were mine, and I was going to do anything to keep you safe, feeling secure and loved. I knew it wouldn’t be easy. There are still days that reduce me to tears… we cry a lot together; and a lot of time I feel I am failing. But you are oh, so forgiving, you always make those hard days and feelings of inadequacy disappear with your cuddles and love pinches at the end of each day. The amount of love I have for you is more than I have ever felt. The need to be your mama, your protector, is stronger than any other pull in my life. You are it baby boy. You are now my reason for living, my reason for waking up in the morning, (usually much earlier than I’d like), and my reason for trying to be a better person.
I truly believe you have something in you that is so good, so powerful, that you will make this world better than before you came. I see your potential. You are so smart, so sweet, so good natured. As a mother, I can only hope I will be able to guide you in a way that your true self will shine and your goodness be apparent. I have no doubt you will do something incredible with this life of yours.
