Who knew I would learn so much from this one, little person. Who knew that as the days passed and the healing slowly began (and still continues) that our hearts would open and change in such big ways.
Esen, you are the greatest gift the world could've ever given us. You make me smile and laugh every day. You always keep me guessing and definitely keep me on my toes! You have taught me patience, gratitude, humility, forgiveness and courage. You are a living testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
Thank you, my little monkey, for allowing us to be your Mom & Dad - it is an honor, a privilege and I am truly grateful every second of every day. I love you more than you can ever know!
