I think there is something special about your first child, of course this doesn't mean that you love this child more than your others, but your first child is the one who made you a mother. This child is the one who breaks you into the craziness and joy that is being a mother. They are your guinea-pig for everything you do as a mother. You count on them, you are harder on them and you find yourself learning how much you really don't know as a mother because of them.
Hannah is my oldest.
I couldn't have asked for a better "oldest" child.
She is loving, kind, smart, helpful, funny, (mostly) obedient, spiritual, and beautiful inside and out.
My Hannah made me a mother.
I have said this before and I will say it again, I always wanted to be a mother and as soon as Flavio and I were married we felt that we should try to build our family.
Of course, after a year of trying, I still wasn't a mother.
So we turned to In Vitro and after the first round, I still was not a mother.
Then we did a second round, I still was not a mother.
But I wasn't going to give up.
After our third try at In Vitro I heard the most wonderful and joyful words from our doctor,
And this little bundle of sweetness came into our lives and made us parents.
We named her Hannah, which means, "gift from God".
She was a true miracle and gift to us.
And now my little miracle is seven.
And I still can't believe seven years have gone by.
This little spirit has brought me more joy and love than I could have ever asked for.
I love you, Hannah!
Happy Happy Birthday to the most amazing seven year old in my life!
Lots of love,
