about a boy...

On February the 17th 1992 I lived in Germany in a town called Bad Hersfeld.
There is where I gave birth to my son... my one and only son... Jorge.
I remember all of it like it was yesterday. I had been in labor for 4 days unsuccessfully trying to birth my baby boy.  I was so young, scared and very naive but not once I doubted the decision of having him and being a mother.

On a full moon night and on the very first snow that winter he came along. Beautiful, healthy and strong. I was 19 years old and today he too turns 19. I was on the other side of the world but my mother and my kid brother were there to welcome him.

At that young age I understood that life could be cruel but I also knew that if I could teach him to keep an honest and open heart he would learn to love life and live life to it's fullest. To know and understand that love should be the rule to live by. I hope I have taught him to live life with no regrets and to the fullest and with the understanding that life is short and oh so fragile.

Love I have learned so much from you... how to love unconditionally... how strong we can to forgive and how I should cherish each fleeting moment... how to let go and be carefree... how to be present.
Love you gave my life purpose and direction and without you in my life I am not sure where I would be today.
I thank you for being my son. I thank the universe for choosing me as your mother. 
I love you my dear child... 
Happy Birthday!


  1. So sweet! Happy Birthday to your boy!

  2. Happy Birthday, what a sweet story.

  3. WOW, that was sweet! I was 18 then.
    I adopted my son Justin when I was 22 and my David was 25 (his biological son, long story, justins momma died)I wrote him a letter the day of his graduation to tell him that the 3 of us grew up together and I am sure you and your sweet son have also.
    you grew into adults together.
    I laugh telling justin that since we are only 15 years apart in age that at some point we will get our senior citizen discounts some day and could end up in a nursing home together, scary thought. As for Hailey I had her naturally and her and justin are like black and white.
    I must admit I have been blessed with the greatest son ever and so have you!
    happy birthday to him!
