I was scheduled for an induction on Monday, October 18, 1999. After starving all day and arriving at the hospital in the wee hours of the morning I was told I wasn't on the schedule until Tuesday morning. "Okay - no baby today" I thought. "Let's go eat!"

Happy Birthday HubbaDood!
We returned the next morning (Tuesday) and signed in. It didn't take very long before I was poked and prodded and started on patosin. Days passed and after vomiting several times, only dilating to 2 and my water finally breaking on Thursday, my precious little boy was finally born via c-section on Friday, October 22, 1999 somewhere around 7:00 a.m. It was on that day that the Lord struck me with the most unexplainable, overwhelming feeling of love, fear and joy all at once. It's amazing how the heart aches for your child. I truly believe God gives us children so we could have a glimpse of an idea of the immense love He has for us. It is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced.
My sweet boy is 7 today. He has brought seven years of enlightenment to my life. I look forward to however many the Lord wills for us to have together.
I would like to share with you the lyrics to a song I wrote when he was a baby. Whenever I get my guitar out he smiles and says "sing my song momma."
* Happy Birthday Baby *
