This was Sofia Madyson 7 years ago. Today she learned how to ride a bike and knocked out an old woman who should have been watching where she was going. Seven years ago I was in agony screaming for her to come out (no epidurals in this town), and when she finally, finally did- I watched fireworks from my hospital room together with three other new moms and their babies. I held my baby girl in my arms and wished for her to be strong, intelligent, honest, hard-working, affectionate and hearing.
At that time, Jordan was angry, frustrated and never hugged or kissed anyone. I wanted Sofia to take that pressure off of him so that the family would have someone capable of showing the love to them that they so desperately wanted to receive from Jordan.
Sofia's job in life was to give love, I never told her that, but she does just that every single day of her life. And now...so does Jordan.
2009 was an explosive year. I predict the atomic bomb here in 2010.
My New Year's Resolutions are:
In constant evolution.
Thank you so much for the love and support you have given me all throughout 2009, I'll probably need twice as much in 2010.
