One year ago today I had just given birth to my new baby boy.

I was in one hospital and he was in the NICU of another.

It was the most exciting, frightening, joyful and overwhelming day - one that I will never, ever forget.

I can say the same about this past year as well. He has made this last year so very full.

Our Oren Henry has brought such light into our lives.

A light we didn't know was missing until he came to us and carved his perfect little place into our family.

In a way I can't believe it's already been a whole year, and yet at the same time it seems like he has always been here.

I remember looking down at him that first day when I finally got to meet him for the very first time.

I remember holding him in my arms and staring into his eyes and thinking, Oh Oren, there you are. Of course it was you all along. 

It was the first time we'd met, but it felt like being reunited with my very best friend.

It's you, and you're back. Back where you belong.

Happy first birthday, my sweet son

Mommy loves you all the way to the moon, and back.
