Birthday wishes

Happy belated birthday, Guero! A mother’s love knows no bounds and neither does her sadness as her first-born son moves onto the next phase of his life, without her holding his hand every step of the way. I’ve been thinking about how we have sort of grown up together. I wasn't a parent before you came along and so I've had to do most of my learning, and failing, with you. From the first look in your eyes and the first time your little fist wrapped around my finger, I was instantly in love with you. Happy 18th birthday, my sweet boy. I'm proud to be your parent and I love you with my heart and soul.
