This picture was taken on December 26, 2001--I had not spoken to my family in almost 2 years. At the time I had no idea how worried they must have been...now that I've had a child I understand, I could not imagine not talking to him for that long and not knowing where he was. I called them on Christmas day, it was the hardest phone call I've ever made, the next day they met me for breakfast. It was a nice but awkward visit. At the time I had no idea I was pregnant and would be moving home for good a week later. Three days later I found out and that was the beginning to a wonderful new journey!
I'm blessed today with so many wonderful people in my life...I just want to thank all my family and friends for being so supportive and never giving up on me!!!!! I'm looking forward to many more amazing years and can't wait to see what lies ahead!!!!!
