The Green Eyed Blond Hair Boy: A Mother's Dream Come True

As a young girl I would play dolls with my friends for hours. We would image what our future children would look like. I would always imagine having a green eyed blond hair little boy. My friends would just laugh at me and shake their heads like, "yeah right, green eyed blond hair little boy, funny."

I was about 18months in this photo, 1977

When Bill and I knew that we were going to be married we would image with one another what our children would look like. I shared with Bill my dreams of having a green eyed blond hair boy. He didn't laugh and for that reason he grew in my estimation.

Nine long years and nine months later Bill and I got to meet our first born child for the first time. I was enamored with my gorgeous green eyed blond hair little bundle of joy.

Since childhood I have dreamed of being a mother to my green eyed blond hair little boy. I remember the feelings of completion I felt when he was placed in my arms for the first time. I am so very grateful for the joy I have in being not only a mother but Liam's mother. He is my joy and fulfillment of the greatest dream possible. I love him so completely and unconditionally. I am grateful to a loving Heavenly Father that gifted him to Bill and myself. I love being a mother and I celebrate this day with a grateful heart. I love being your mother Liam and I love you Bill for making me a mother.
