Welcoming Grant to this world!

I just wanted to announce the arrival of my not-so-wee-one to the world.

Grant was born at 1:38am on April 1, 2009 after 20 hours of labor. He weighed 10 lbs. 9 oz. and measured 22 inches long. There were some complications to the labor and delivery which caused me to stay in the hospital for a bit longer than the average mom, but I'm much better now and back at home.

I love my boy more than anything else in this world. He is the most beautiful thing in my eyes, and nothing can change that.

Grant was adopted by my brother and his wife, made official by the courts today. So even though I will always see him as my boy, he is theirs and will be blessed with a life full of opportunities, love, and happiness. I love Dave and Laura and know that this is what Heavenly Father wanted all along. And no matter how much pain and anguish I feel or will feel, nothing will ever change the way I feel about the rightness of it all. I know it.

In the meantime, I will celebrate his life while I work on healing my own.
