I can't believe how much he's changed.
I can't believe how much he's changed me.
I never thought I would take a baby that young. I'm a single, full-time working mom. I like sleep! I need sleep, and newborns are definitely not conducive to sleep. But when I got the late night call about a 2-month-old baby boy, I was shocked to hear the words, "Sure! Let me throw on a bra, and you can bring him on over!" come out of my mouth. I wasn't so much shocked that I said something about my undergarments to a caseworker who I'd never met before as I was that I had just agreed to kiss away my slumber for the next several months without batting an eye! I couldn't believe I'd said "yes," but I'm a firm believer in going with my initial instincts when it comes to taking placements (a lesson I learned the hard way). If "yes" came out of my mouth, who was I to question it? :-)
One year ago today, God gave me a little Chunky Monkey. One year ago today, I was changed.
