A Poem for Jeremy:
We never thought it would be like this...You came into our lives unexpectedly, quite by surprise. And we waited...with excitement, anticipation, worry and concern...for you safe arrival into our arms. We never thought it would be like this... A whirlwind of emotions...laughter and tears... as you entered into the world and time stood still for us. We gazed into the watery pool of your tiny, blue eyes and fell in love instantly. We never thought it would be like this...The dewy softness of you skin, the sweet whisper of your breath, the silky down of your tiny head, the curl of you warm, tender body into our arms...memories to cling to forever. We never thought it would be like this... A baby boy, our son, a blessing from God, sent to us on the wing of an angel. You chosen for us, us chosen for you. Love without bounds...put into our heart to keep, to stay, to share, to give away..the love of our child...We never thought it would be like this.
Love, Mommy and Daddy, Feb. 23, 2000.
