FC: Kwintzy Nicole Thomas
1: All for you Everlasting love forever skies of blue All in your heart Never ending just a means for start
3: My eyes flutter open as the first light of morning comes seeping into the room. There you are!! Cuddled up to daddy. We'd all sleep in the hospital bed together that night...our first moments as a family. I hold you in my arms...& in my heart. I know you were always meant to be in both because I've already forgot life before you. You are a part of me & will be for a lifetime. The adrenaline & amazement from the night before subsides & reality sinks in. You're mine! It seems so unreal yet so natural. I settle into Motherhood instantly! The world is new! The colors of the evening seem more vibrant & more beautiful, however I can't keep my eyes off you. In your car seat, sleeping so perfectly as though it wasn't your first time! My emotions swell inside me but don't show! My life could not be more perfect! All my dreams have come true; we turn the corner to our new home, our new life...together. Time has brought your heart to me...and the timing couldn't be more perfect. Kwintzy, you are an angel sent to me just when I needed you. You've saved me, making me a better person, the person I've always wanted to be...Mom!!! I love you more than I can ever say in words!

I pray everyday that I can teach you all that you need to know to grow to have an happy fulfilling life! If only daughters could see themselves through their mother's eyes! They would never doubt themselves. They'd have the confidence to do anything they dreamed of! They'd have the most highest self esteem & never would live every moment to the fullest! Kwintzy I wish you could see yourself though my eyes!!! I love you more than I'll ever be able to put into words....
