Happy Birthday Efthemios

It all started when my dad was in hospice…I felt awful and nauseous but figured that it was due to the stress and sadness that I was feeling. After the funeral I headed back to California with a hole in my heart and an ache in my belly. I woke up every day wondering how a loss could feel so much like morning sickness.
8 months later, we showed up at the hospital and they put us in room 1129…the same room that I had given birth to our first boy 6 years before. At that moment, I knew that everything would be alright. And I was right. He was perfect. And beautiful. And the most amazing gift that our little family could have ever asked for. We are grateful for him every day.
Happy birthday to you, Efthemios. You are the little bird who flew our way just when we needed you the most. Thank you for perching on the branches of my heart when it felt cold and dark.
Life continues on, and it is beautiful.
