I woke up this morning at 4 and couldn't get back to sleep. So I came downstairs, fixed a cup of coffee and decided to get my day started a bit early.

Can you believe how big Alfredo is getting? I love this picture of him with his Aunt Tootsie (my wonderful friend Lorraine).

Did you know it will soon be 2 years since he came back to live with us? Isn't that hard to believe? I'm just so grateful for this life, this beautiful path to motherhood.

He's doing so well. Growing into such a sweet little boy. So smart. So sweet. So big.

Aunt Tootsie is looking terrific and Alfredo looks right at home, hanging on her.I missed her at SB this year. This has worked out so beautifully for you Amy.You have raised a handsome, happy, healthy boy. We did things differently, too, sharing our house with thirteen other teens and young adults, many who still call us mom and dad. We have young friends across the world.
There are a lot of ways to live a life and parent and you found a path.

I am so happy for you and so proud to know you.
