Today is Dylan's birthday and only 19 days from the 1st anniversary of his passing. But today I focus on his beginning and the day that my life became complete and so very wonderful; I became "ma". I had him caesarean and when I saw him for the first time, he was in an incubator; mad, crying, and blue. I knew he was mine in that instant. From there he gave me 27 years of love, saddness, hope, joy, worry, inspiration, pride, disapointment, but above all utter happiness and the miracle of motherhood. I was so blessed to be his mother, and I thank God for giving him to me. I celebrate your birthday today beloved son. Ma misses you so very much. May I feel your spirit close today. I love you!
