Today, a whole year ago I was in labour with you. Today one year ago I was so scared of the future. I was petrified that I wouldn’t be able to love you enough. I was terrified of the unknown and I was frightened of bringing you into this cruel and harsh world.
How young, naive and silly I was. From the moment that you entered this world, you changed our lives in a million more ways than we could have imagined. You have caused me to love you so much that I often feel like my heart will explode.
I have never been more proud. I have never been more happy, and I have never been more content. You have made me a better person. You have made me a person who will fight for you, who will be your advocate, no matter what.
You have opened my eyes up to a whole new world. A world which I was once so apprehensive of and now marvel at with an intense sense of pride and awe.
Our hope for you, as your parents, is that as you continue to grow you will know exactly how loved you are, we promise to try and show you each and every day just how much.
We hope that you know just how much joy you bring into our lives. We promise to continue to nurture your joyful spirit.
Our wish is that you continue to touch the lives of so many people and that those people are privileged enough to experience your pureness of spirit first hand. We also promise to remind you of how many people have shaped, moulded and loved you.
Our wish is that you never lose your determined nature. We promise to always be gently encouraging and to celebrate each milestone and achievement with elation.
We cannot promise that we will always be able to protect you from the ugliness in the world, but we do promise that we will do our utter best to show you the beauty of it. We will endeavor to educate as many people as we can so that they too see only the beauty.
Thank you for choosing us to be your parents. We can say without a shadow of a doubt that by choosing you, in that cold, clinical, specialists office was the best decision that we have ever made.
Happy birthday our darling froggie, we our so proud of you our darling boy.
