Happy Birthday Kaden

 No tongue can tell or pen could write what you have meant to me.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I was not more than a baby myself trying to do the best for you. This year you are older than I was when I had you.

 

It was SCARY!!!

 Loving you was always the map I traced.

You are the love of my life.

 I sat down so many times this week to write, and couldn’t find the words. How do I write our story where do I begin? Do I begin with life preparing me for you? My egg baby with Down syndrome in high school? It feels like there is no part of me that ever existed without you. Even before you were born, you were meant to be mine. I wish I could have done a better job. I wish I had some wisdom behind me when I started out as your Mommy. I trusted Doctors when I should have fought harder. I have many regrets but having you will never be one of them.

I wish I had a do over. I wish I could go back and live it all over again. It passed too fast!!! You turn 20 today. Where did the time go?

Feels like Yesterday.

It felt like we had all the time in the world. You stayed so little for so long I had what felt like a baby so much longer than most Mom’s get to. I felt like that was a great big bonus. Especially when your brothers came along! I loved my Chilled take it easy baby, not in any hurry for life to pass us by.

Or Agenda

You can relax in your presence because you don’t have to read between the lines or worry about awkward social cues. You will make your opinions known very clearly. You are who you are. You feel what you feel. You are 100 percent authentic.
