I am a mommy. It might not be to a human, but my heart is filled with love just the same. This little guy has taught me patience, selflessness, and unconditional love. I would do anything for him. When I am not with him it feels as if I forgot something. I stare at him for hours, and I never tire of his cuteness. We cuddle-he lays his head on my chest and falls asleep. He relies on me for so much, and I plan my schedule around him. I stay up with him when he is sick, and it makes me feel ill myself when he is hurting. I take ten thousand photos of him and show them to anyone and everyone. I delight in his happiness and content. I excitedly await the day that I become a mother to a child (and Billy becomes a brother), but for now…this feels just the same. I am grateful for and cherish every moment we are given.
