Micah's Mother's Day letter to Mama

Here's what Bruce wrote for me for Mother's Day:

My mama rocks! She came all the way from the United States to get me in China when I was 2 and a half years old. (I’m a big boy now because I am already four years old.) In China, my mama held me, hugged and kissed me, and told me that she would never leave me. Even when I yelled, kicked and tried to get away from her, she just kept on hugging me and whispering my name and telling me she was my forever mama and that she would never leave me. Sometimes she would sing me to sleep, and after hearing the song about 10 times, I would fall asleep in her arms.

Now that I’m bigger and going to pre-K, my mama gives me breakfast and lets me choose my own snack for school. She sings songs to me and helps me with my homework. She picks me up from school every day and plays with me whenever I ask. And, at night if I have had a bad dream or am just lonely, she gets up out of her warm, cozy bed and runs to me, holds me and tells me that she is there, and that everything is going to be okay. And you know what? In just a few minutes everything is okay and before I know it I have fallen back asleep.

I had to have surgery in my mouth last year, and mama stayed with me and slept with me every night in my little hospital bed until I cried myself to sleep. She said she would not leave me and she didn’t!  My mama also spends extra time with me helping me to pronounce letters and words the right way, because I need a little extra help right now. But I am getting better and better each day and can say all kinds of stuff now. Sometimes I can’t stop talking, and my mama just laughs and tells me that I am special and that she just loves to hear my voice. That's why my mama rocks!
