Then one day, she was terribly ill, and sore in her bosom but couldn't find the cause. Until...like magic, a wand appeared, showing two pink lines and the way to motherhood. The girl's wish had come true... and it came true again and again and again. And they lived happily ever after.
13 years ago today, I gave birth to a beautiful, happy, baby boy, who not only gave me the gift of motherhood when I thought all was lost, but has also taken me--and continues to take me-- on the most wonderfully edifying adventure. I love you, Zack. You have amazed me from your first breath. I am proud of who you are each and every day.
