Those are their one year old pictures, my babies. Now they are eleven and nine. As a mom I have never loved them less at any stage. At all ages they will remain my children. There is a bond formed that runs so deep that no words can explain that type of love.
I am blessed daily to be in each of their lives, to be loved by them and to love them. Their dependence on me has lessened over the years. My most important ministry on this earth is to raise my children as children of God and to be the best possible mom ever. I thank God daily for my children and pray that they keep God in their lives forever.
They were my babies but they will always be my sons.
