Perfect Moment Monday- Tanti Auguri

My baby turns 3 today.

We had a wonderful birthday weekend and I am in awe about how fast time has flown. We found out that Min man would be our son when he was 8 months old. It is hard to believe that our little boy lived in this world for that long before we knew he existed.

Today is a special day to remember his first parents. I am so grateful for Min man's birth parents. I noticed recently that I have not spoken about Min man's birth parents much. This is not because I do not think of them often when I look at my son. It is because I am not sure what to say. How does one describe the feeling of gratitude for bringing their child into the world? How do I say that I will never understand what it must have been like to make the incredibly difficult but selfless decision to give their child a better life?

Where would I be if Min man did not exist? I really have no idea.

Happy birthday to my dear little boy. I look forward to every day we have together. You have changed my life completely.

Happy Birthday to Min Man! I have thought a lot about how I would like to honor our future child's birth mother on his/her birthday. What you said was a very touching tribute.

I meant to add: I often feel the same way about our donor. What would our lives be like if he hadn't made the choice he made? How do you thank someone for giving your child life? There is no thank you great enough!

Tanti auguri a tutti.

I am visiting from Weebles Wobblog's Perfect Moment Monday!

I think birthday's are a great day to celebrate a person's time here on earth. When you combine that with complete gratitude, it is like frosting on the (birthday) cake.

Thanks for sharing your perfect moment!

Happy Birthday to him! I bet the birth mother would be so gracious to hear you still think about her often and thank her for your blessing :)

Happy birthday to your little guy! It really is amazing how it flies by--our boy is 10 months old and I can't believe it's been that long since he entered our lives, and yet I can't imagine life without him!

It's lovely to hear you talk about your gratitude for your child in that way. He is as lucky to have you as you feel you are to have him.
I'm not sure what PFM does but I am going to check it out. Anyone or anything that helps people create their own family is tops in my book.
