January 22, 2014 was the day that changed my life forever…OUR BABY WAS BORN. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was at the hospital. I remember telling Abraham, “I want to stay here in the hospital another day,” because I was so scared to come home and take on this new role of motherhood. After leaving the hospital, I returned to a new place and as a new woman. The day I went into labor, was also the same exact day we moved into our home in Inglewood, California. I feel like my life (re) started once we arrived at our new home, with a new baby. Although I was so happy and excited to become a mother, I was also scared and anxious of my new role. These emotions have not completely vanished, but I am learning to adjust and embrace motherhood. Every morning I wake up and see Sofia Luna, I feel like it is Christmas: opening up a new gift with excitement. She brings me so much joy and a new perspective on life. She motives me to be the best person I can be. My dreams and path we take as a family are for her and her future.
I can’t believe that today, we are now celebrating Sofia Luna’s 3rd Birthday. As she grows, we will continue to guide her with our love. Here we go!
To my daughter, Sofia Luna on your birthday,
You are our sweetest gift and we adore you.
