My Gratitude This Year

My son is officially one year old. His adoption is final as of just under two weeks ago. It was the most harrowing ride I’ve ever been on.

We’re his now. I don’t know words to describe the curiosity about the process of knowing who I am when my grief and fear subside. But I do know I nailed it, , this far, with the love of my massive support system. One year of my son.

He is a teacher, an orator, a social lover of new people and foods and places. What doesn’t he love? He’s also super funny. I’ll have to keep up. I’ll stop now because I cannot contain his everything with my words.

Thank you everyone who loves him. What a warm world you’ve all created for him and for us.
