a very special person came into being.
While I knew I would not be able to raise him myself, I did everything I could to make certain that he would get the life he deserved. Even if that life was not with me.
I have no regrets. The decision was the best for us both and I believe we are both better people than we would have been because of the decision I made. His parents got to raise a wonderful child, he was safe, happy, healthy, loved and cared for, and I was able to make my life something I'm proud to get to tell him about today.
Alex, I hope you have a wonderful day today. You are funny, sweet, dramatic, goofy...
I am happy and grateful for the time you and your parents have given in the past year so that I can finally get to know you. It is more than I'd ever dared to hope for.
Here's to many more years with you as a part of my life.
