Because for the first time in life I understood, Feathers and wings like mine were good, But a loving heart was what I wanted to share. Could that also be seen in my child's stare? I questioned this more as Sky grew, Because whenever I said, “I love you,” All he ever answered...

I’m sure every single one of you remembers the day that you received that wonderful news that you were going to be parents, hands down the best day of your life, right? As if on autopilot–your thoughts immediately run away with you and already you are looking into the mirror ball and seeing this perfect and blissful journey up ahead, through life with your bundle of joy.
