Three years ago...

The first time I saw my beautiful warrior... 3 years ago.
Three years ago I was sitting in a hotel room scared beyond belief, unsure if my child would survive. Three years ago I knew my life would never be the same but I had no idea I would find my purpose in life. Three years ago today I was preparing for the birth of my heart baby. I thought I knew what to expect but I really had no clue. I was supposed to be anticipating one of the greatest joys of my life. Instead I was scared to death of the possibility that I may have to say good-bye to him forever.

This journey has been a roller coaster full of emotions. We hit so many different odds and had many curve balls thrown at us throughout the past three years. It has also been the greatest three years of my life. Jacob is such a blessing to our entire family. He has taught us all what life is truly about. We have met so many amazing families throughout our journey who we never would have met had it not been for Jacob. We have been able to help others through his story and find strength in theirs. What I had thought was my biggest fear has turned into our biggest blessing. Jacob and Aidan are my greatest gifts and I am so grateful I was chosen to be their mother.

Tomorrow my beautiful little heart warrior will turn three years old. A day I wasn't sure I would ever see. A day I celebrate with all of my heart and soul. I am blessed beyond words. 

You continue to amaze me by your strength, inspire me to be a better person and teach me that together we can overcome any obstacle that we face. Happy birthday beautiful boy. I love you more than life itself and I am so very proud of you!
