That is the line that has been running through my head these last few weeks. This baby has brought so much love into our home and so many people have so much love for him.
When I think about his birthparents and how they love him and are concerned about how he is doing; or when I put our little guy down on the blanket his birthfather's mom and sister made for him, I am humbled by the amount of love they have for our baby.
All of our friends at work, in the neighborhood, and church have so much love for him. I will always remember when we took our kid to church and shocked everyone with his arrival. People were crying and smiling all at the same time. I will always remember how "L", after hearing the news and seeing our baby said, "this is the happiest day of my life".
His uncle came to visit and decorated his room. It looks so awesome. After coming home from dropping my brother off at the airport I walked back into our little guy's room. As I quietly admired his room, I felt so much love and happiness emanating from that room. It is unbelievable how many people love our little guy.
There are many more people and experiences I could recount.
His grandma texting us saying, "I can't wait to get a hold of this little guy"
My neighbor thanking me for calling her to see if she could watch him. And then seeing how she was willing to change her whole schedule so she could do it.
Another brother of mine leaving a message to have me call him when our baby woke up so he could talk to him.
Watching his daddy hold him and give him fatherly advice.
I feel so much love for my son when I see his bright eyes looking at me. I feel love for him when I watch him sleep or when I respond to his cries to be held, changed, or fed. I love talking to him, holding him, and being his mom.
When I think of the love this little guy has brought into my life, I am just in awe, and all I can say is, "Wow". And I can't help but repeat this same phrase in my head, "so much love".
I hope our little guy will always know and feel of the love that I and countless others have for him.
He is a special little guy, that's for sure.
