"The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail - when the soul of a woman must birth the woman inside her. The emotional labour pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth - perhaps it is even more sacred."
~ Joy Kusek
A year ago today, you, our darling Alby, decided it was time to grace the world... and in that moment, all of our dreams were suddenly manifested in our arms and our wild love story with you began.
Happy first birthday, little Fox.
