Guys, I can’t describe how touched I am by all your kind comments and emails! I hope you can forgive me for not being able to answer all of you personally, as there are lots of other things I need to do these first few days!
But what I can say is that I’m so unbelievably happy now, in a way I had never imagined I’d ever be. I mean, I was truly looking forward to meeting my child while I was carrying him, but the way I feel about him now that he is here has really exceeded my expectations by far. I think euphoric might be the word. I guess, it’s that kind of unconditional love I’d heard of before, but couldn’t relate to. But it turns out you have to experience it to know it.
And yes, it all hit me the moment I held him for the first time, and I knew right away that this feeling was forever.
