The 2-year-old boy who calls me mommy has big, brown eyes, his dad’s curly Italian hair from his own youth and is a lover of all things Nick Jr.
Many people say children are gifts but Gianluca is so much more than that in many ways – he is the blessing we feared would never be possible.
Being his mom means joining him on his little boy adventures, watching his face light up with wonder when he spots a big truck and giggling with him when he feels Play-Doh in his hands. He is the amazing light at the end of the years-long tunnel of infertility.
And on Tuesday, May 27, Gianluca became a big brother to our newborn son Paolo.
