They compliment my feminine spirit better than I ever could have imagined possible.
I gave birth to them, but they gave me so much more. Motherhood is like a birthday every day. There are surprises and gifts around each corner - in every smile, embrace, silly moment, tear, and milestone.
These children are the party of my life.
