I came across this beautiful letter a little while back. It touched me then. I stumbled across it again this weekend and it touched me again. It's a welcome letter written by Jess at A Diary of a Mom. I wanted to share it with all of you. Enjoy.
Motherhood is about raising and celebrating the child you have, not the child you thought you would have. It's about understanding that he is exactly the person he is supposed to be. And that, if you're lucky, he just might be the teacher who turns you into the person you are supposed to be. ~The Water Giver
The Scoop on Us
If you're new to this blog and would like to know more about us, check out these posts:
I'm a Part-Time Work-at-Home Mom to my twin boys, Daniel and Benjamin. They were born in September 2007 at just 30 weeks and 2 days (that's almost 10 weeks early). After 8 weeks and 1 day, we were finally able to bring them home from the hospital. A week after their first birthday, my sweet boy Ben was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. This blog is mostly about Ben's accomplishments and challenges but is also about me, my family and anything I feel like sharing. Email me at aboutthesmallstuff at hotmail dot com
