Six Years Ago Today

I was packing for my trip to the hospital. Four states away. And terrified that a woman I never met and probably would never meet would dash my hopes like so many did before her.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) I will celebrate a birth that I suffered through but wasn't even sure occurred.

A year ago I wrote the last letter that I would ever send to the woman who made me a mother. I offered more if she would just express an interest and she didn't.

I wonder if she hurts tonight?

Wherever you are, I thank you. He is a joy and a treasure. We will never forget what you did for us. You are never far from our thoughts and you gave our family more than you could ever know.

Is there more to this story here? Am I going to have to dig into the archives to find it?
