1: Long before you were born, your dad began planting baby thoughts in my head. Your dad and I loved each other so much, and we wanted to share that love with another little person. One day, I decided that I could not wait any longer to bring one such little person into the world; and for eight long months we tried to bring you into the world. I cried as each month passed without any sign of you. I began to believe that you would never be more than just a dream that I longed for. Finally on April 2, 2011, we got the news that you would be on your way. I was overwhelmed with joy. I did everything to care for and protect you from that day on. On July 27, 2011, your dad and found out that you would be a little boy and were so happy once again. I Some days were tough carrying you around, and I could not wait to hold you in my arms. I finally got to on December 13, 2011. This was one of the happiest days of my life equaled only by the day I married your dad. I am so thankful to have you in my life and I love you more than I could ever express. Love, Mom | Ephram,
