21 years

21 years ago today I was in the hospital.

21 years ago a little boy was born.

21 years ago I became a mother...but not.

21 years ago I made two people happy.

21 years ago I made my mother cry.

21 years ago I cried.

21 years ago I did the hardest thing I've ever done.

21 years ago I said goodbye before I ever said hello.

21 years now, and he's grown into a young man.

In less than seven days I will see him for the first time in 21 years.

In less than seven days I will finally be able to say hello, face to face.

Happy Birthday Chris. I hope it is a wonderful day for you!
