Wow! I can't believe that 12 years ago today, we were sitting in the waiting room at St Joseph Women's Hospital in Tampa, Fl. waiting for our first child to be born. Around 7pm, a beautiful, healthy blond hair, blue-eyed boy was welcomed into the world. Due to circumstances of the adoption, we were unable to see Jacob until he was 2 days old. Aunt Kim went to the hospital and fed him and loved him until we were able to hold him for the first time. Thank you, Kim for you and your family's love for Jacob! We love you so much! WOW! I can still remember almost all the details of that time. IT was awesome and something I will never forget. The nurses had said that he hadn't been eating much, but drank a whole 3 oz bottle when we fed him for the first time. He broke us in when we changed his diaper for the first time and he "watered" the room. He was a very good baby. God blessed me with a beautiful son, now 12. He is so full of life. Loves to fish, hunt and hang out with family. Jacob has a kind, loving and compassionate heart. I can't help to think about his birthmother at this time. WOW! If she knew how much we love and appreciate her, too. What a unselfish thing she did by trusting us to raise her son. The words out of her mouth to me after she was discharged from the hospital, I will never forget, "Your a Mommy now" Thank you God, for putting Grandma and Grandpa C and Aunt Kim in our lives and giving me that chance of becoming a Mom! We love you Jacob and are so proud of you! Hope you have the best birthday ever!
