Day 11: There will never be enough days in this life, light in our days, our words in our vocabulary to express our gratitude for our birth mom. Today is her birthday. Happy happy birthday dear birth mom. Your birth 22 years ago changed our world, and our family, because of the choice you made when you gave birth. I hope your mom is proud of you. When I look at Samuel I am proud of him. And I am overflowing with gratitude for the gift of raising him. You grew him for 9 months and I get to raise him for a lifetime. How do I thank you? In all humility, from the depth of my soul, from one mom to another, I say thank you. Today and every day I am grateful to you, for you and to God for my son.
