There isn't a day that goes by that I don't look at her and wonder...
How could I be so lucky? What did I do to deserve her?
As a first time adoptive mother, I worried...
If I am being completely honest, I worried a lot.
I worried about all the unknown details (the details that might always be unknown)
I worried about all that was out of my control (things that I might never be able to control)
I worried about big things and little things...about everything.
Then I met Sawyer.
Her big eyes and long lashes, her sweet little mouth.
She looked familiar. She smelled familiar.
My fear faded, because...
I knew that she was mine.
What an incredible year it has been. What a joy it is to be a part of her life. What a privilege it is to be her mother and watch her grow and learn. I can not wait to see what the future holds!
