Fifteen years ago, I become a mom for the first time. You will find a million blog posts on the internet that start similarly. But behind each of these posts is a Mama’s heart, half bursting with pride, half breaking for the time that is racing past. Today I celebrate this young man who made me a mother… He now towers over me at 6’1″ but he’ll still always be my little Blakester. The little blonde- haired, blue-eyed baby boy who was born at 3:53 am on a hot July day.
