Christmas Eve

As I lay my baby in her crib and whisper that Santa will have found her by morning, I think of all the years I waited for this moment. I feel overwhelmed with gratitude that I get to be Paloma's Mama. I reflect on the hard days I went through in order to find myself here tonight, signing presents from Mom and Dad. I look at the ornament on the tree that says Paloma's First Christmas, 2014. It's all so emotional.

And tonight, like many other nights, I also think of all the women out there who are still fighting their battles. I am saying a prayer for all the childless mothers and the motherless children tonight.
