Morgan Turns 21

It’s a Big Milestone! Morgan Turns 21.

Today is a big deal. A big big deal. Today, Morgan turns 21 and becomes a legal adult! I can’t believe I have a 21-year old. I can’t believe I’m old enough to have a 21-year old! It feels like only yesterday when I was 21 myself. Actually, I think that was yesterday. We’ll go with that.

Morgan is my firstborn and was – and is still – everything I ever wanted. She was a beautiful baby girl, and if I’m being completely honest, I wanted a girl! She is my miracle baby. I was 17 when I had her and unlike most teenage pregnancies back then, I did not choose abortion. She was born the summer between my Junior and Senior years in high school (and I still went on to graduate valedictorian. Just sayin’).

She is the decision I am the most proud of.

I know I say this all the time, but the thing I love most about Morgan is that she is not afraid to be herself. She is completely comfortable with individuality, and that’s something I admire (and sometimes envy) about her. She is not a fickle girl either. When she finds something she loves, she holds on tight, as her friends can attest. She chooses carefully, with lots of thought and passion.

Morgan, our lives are made better because you are in them. But don’t go thinking that just because you’re an adult now means that you’re not my baby.

You’ll always be that. I love you. Happy Birthday!
