I am laying beside my son as he sleeps, and reflecting on how much he has grown, what obstacles he has overcome in his short life, and how deeply I fell in love with him. I was looking back at these pictures from Russia and they shock me on what love and a family can do for a child. He is so smart, so loving, and has such a nice spirit. Two hours until you are officially 4 years old. I love you. Happy Birthday, thank you for making me a Mommy. I am blessed to be a part of your life.
