My Heart and Soul...



*Maxwell*

The instant that I heard you cry,
I knew I was in love.
The moment that I touched your face,
I felt blessed straight from above.

And never once did I believe
we'd have to make it on our own
decisions were made, bridges were burned
I just wish I would have known.

But the past is the past
and we've moved ahead-
no matter how difficult,
no matter what was said.

You are my little boy right now,
but soon you'll be a man-
I just hope that the way I've raised you
helps you follow God's amazing plan.

Cause little boy-
when I look at you
I see so much inside -
a heart that's overflowing
with joy you just can't hide.

Although we've been through pain and hurt
together we will stand-
proud to be our own family,
held safe in God's gracious hand.

Love,
Mommy

Thanks for the comment on my photo site. I actually have a travel backdrop so we took those pictures at Courtney's house. This way I can take pictures at my house or someone elses.
