Sam age 6, reading to Sophia (feb – 2003)

 

someone is turning 16 today

sixteen

it's really something to look back to this day all those years ago

myself as a brand new mama

looking into the face of this brand new little soul

not knowing exactly how the journey would unfold itself

but being absolutely, completely in love

he will always be the first great thing I ever did

a very, very happy birthday to you Sam

we love you & miss you

  1. Aww! ‘he will always be the first great thing I ever did’ You said everything that I feel about my almost 16 year old, and what it felt like to become a mother. You are such a good mama. Happy birthday Sam! Happy birth day, mama!
