On His First Birthday

 

On year ago today, at 1:28 PM, the doctor handed me a miracle.

My sweet baby boy had his eyes squeezed shut tight.  He had his lip out in a pout, and after a minute he let out the tiniest mew of a cry.

We fell in love with him right then and there.

The second they handed him to me tears started streaming down my face.  I was so overwhelmed, and so, so happy to meet my son.

One of the nurses chuckled at my reaction and joked that if I didn’t want him, she would take him.

I smiled through my tears and said “No, I want him.”

Oh, how I wanted that baby.  How I had dreamed and hoped, waited and prayed for him.  And there he was in my lap.

A miracle.

Here we are, one year later, on my boy’s first birthday.  My husband and I can’t even explain how much joy he has brought to our lives.  I feel so honored to have him as my son.

I think every year I’ll probably look back and reminisce about the first moment with Wyatt.  The moment our son entered the world.  The moment we became a family of three.

And I’ll be amazed, and I’ll thank God for how far we’ve come.
