If only I could have told myself one year ago, that I would be holding you in my arms today; seeing you gazing up at me with your wide doey- eyes, perfect fish lips, hearing your sweet newborn noises, smelling that beautiful milky head and stroking that cute little bit of baggy skin you have at the back of your neck.
No words from my little brain can come close to explaining just how precious the moments we share each day are.
It was such a long, hard and personal journey to get to you, I just feel so extremely grateful that you are finally here, to feel the warm and heavy weight of you on my lap. I’ve been so overwhelmed with love for you that I’ve even sobbed happy tears while looking at down at your perfect face. You were so wanted, and you are so deeply loved.
Welcome to our family and welcome to the world Rufus, let’s make this life we have together an adventure, little boy.
