I have only been a mom for 3 short months but oh how i love it more and more everyday! When Addie was first placed in my arms i remember being so excited to get to know her. It was love at first sight, your in love instantly... but i didn't know know her yet. I didn't know how she liked to be held or what words soothed her. I think that has been one of the best parts...just getting to know her cute little personality.
I am so grateful for the opportunity i have to be a mom. So grateful to a heavenly father for giving me this chance, for trusting me with Addie on her earthly journey. At times its overwhelming to think about all the responsibility i have as a mom but i will do my very best. I am grateful for my own Mom. For the example she has been my entire life. I know that my dream of being a mom (even as a little girl) is because of the mom that she was. I hope that i can at least be half as good as she is.
Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful Moms!!
