I didn't have a clue how to be a mother and there you were, helpless, totally dependent on me. Somehow we made it through. You taught me a lot about myself. You showed me that a person can love someone else so much that their heart nearly bursts. I remember rocking you to sleep each night. You would fight and kick and cry then suddenly you just dropped off to sleep. I would sit there for a time just breathing in your baby smell and wonder how I would ever manage to raise you. Well, its been 32 years and you are mostly raised. I like what you have become and I love the man that you are but you will always be my baby boy.
