I took a moment to look through my computer and realized that many maternal moments were right there for posterity.

This picture was taken 13 days after Jordan was born. It was the first time I got to hold him after they took him away. For 13 days, we watched him immobilized on a hospital bed hooked up to machines. And then, without any fanfare, the nurse looked at me and asked, "Would you like to hold him?"

I thought I would never forget what that moment felt like; and what it felt like to be a mother.

I've realized, it just keeps getting better.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mamas out there.
