Seven years ago today, almost to the hour, this little creature found his way out of my very large body and joined our very new family. It was not an easy birth, not an easy pregnancy, but what was to follow, I could have never predicted how deeply it changed me.
Seven years ago today, I faced a deep dark fear. The fear that I was too broken to have a family of my own.
Seven years ago today, I met someone who would teach me things about myself I never knew.
Seven years ago today, I met someone who would make me realize that as a family, we hold the power to decide how to live our lives.
Seven years ago today, I met someone who would make me understand that anyone can change.
Seven years ago, I fell in love with a boy.
Happy Birthday Mateo
