My oldest child, & only son is celebrating his 12th birthday today. I, on the other hand, am celebrating so much more. For it was he, this incredible, blessed gift, that was my salvation. I had been told I would never have children, after trying everything short of in-vitro. Yet, here he was…somehow, someway…a tiny, fuzzy, black & white jellybean on the monitor…MY Jellybean. The sound of his galloping heartbeat brought tears of joy & wonder to my eyes. I was smitten, head over heels, overwhelmed by a love I never thought possible. For someone I had yet to even meet.
