A year ago today was one of the worst and best days of my life. We came so close to losing Max during his crazy birth. I’ll never forget the moment when the doctor put Max on my belly and he was lifeless and purple. NOTHING can prepare you for a moment like that. And it is something that you just can’t forget.
But luckily in our case, I also got to experience the tremendous joy that comes when you see your child being brought back to life.
I am so lucky to have him in my life. He is so incredibly sweet and happy. He constantly makes me smile.
I’m amazed at how determined he is … even at his young age. He rarely gives up (of course if he’s tired and hungry its a whole different scenario). Its a good thing because he definitely has a whole lot of obstacles ahead of him.
In one year, being Max’s mommy has taught me so much. One of the biggest lessons I have learned is to live in the “Now.” It was something I always wanted to do and now I am forced to learn how (although I really wish I had to learn this lesson in a different way). It is impossible to move forward when you are thinking about the past or the future or the what ifs. The only way to get to the next step is to look at where we are at that exact moment and go from there.
Thank you Max for being so strong and helping me to be strong right along with you.
I love you Max!
