A year ago today,
You changed our lives for good.
You allowed us to have something
We never knew we could.
It started with a message
That shared your age and name
And quickly turned to friendship
Things would never be the same
It was absolutely meant to be
We know it from the start
You’d be much more than just a friend
You’d be forever in our hearts
We talked so much, right off the bat
We had so much to say
We had such common interest
We talked and talked all day
We shared a love for eating
We shared a love for dance
We even shared some movies
This could not have been by chance
We shared each others clothes
We shared a bathroom too
We shared so much, I can’t recall
Did it belong to me or you?
We’ve shared a lot of things since then
But one is greater than any other
To one special boy, whom we love so much
We share the title ‘Mother’
I change his diapers, give him baths
And feed him crackers too.
But you and he shared 9 whole months
Just the two of you
I might be the mommy,
Who’ll deal with his sadness and strife
But you, Kenz are the mommy
Who gave our sweet son life
We’ve shared so much this past year
We’ve laughed and we’ve cried too
And there’s no one I’d rather share mommy-hood with
Than my biggest hero, YOU.
On the 6th of this month it will be one year since you first e-mailed us. So much has changed since then, but one thing that will never change is how much we love you. Thank you for giving us the greatest gift anyone in the world could have ever given. We love you more than words can say and we hope we get to see you really, really soon. We love you!
-Collin, Ashlee, and Nolan
