Turning 13… A Rite Of Passage

The day was September 22nd, 2003. I was selfish. A workaholic. 9 months pregnant. And didn't know just how my life would change the next day, at 5:40am on a Tuesday, September 23rd. When I heard the first cry, it literally took my breath away. I was instantly hooked. I hovered over his crib in the hospital. I watched him…
