Junior High School Graduate Another Milestone Of Life

I closed my eyes but for a moment and suddenly a young man stood where a boy used to be. 
I may not carry you in my arms but I will always carry you in my heart. 
You have given me so many reasons to be proud of the young man you have become, but the proudest moment for me is telling others you are my son.

We made it. 
Yes, we all made it, if you would have asked me during the first few days of Jr High School that it would be hard, I would have answered no. I was naive and didn't know better.
The reality of it all is that it was hard and that thanks to everybody pictured above, we were able to survive the 3 years. These past 3 years have been hard for many reasons, not only was Miguel going through the little kid to big kid change but there were some other stuff going on in the school that left us with a bitter sweet note during the first few months that we were there and let me tellyou that it didn't get better, it only made things worse because it made the remaining 2 years and a half very sour. I really can't go into details about what happened because it's not my story to tell, all I can say is that Miguel is as happy as us to bid this school goodbye. Yes, he will miss some of his friends who will be moving along to other schools and that thanks to them those remaining years were not that bad.
What I learned during these 3 years is that family helps soften the blow and as long as we are together, we can survive anything. They've all been there from the moment that Miguel was born.

There will never be a way for me to repay my gratitude for my family, except then me telling them how much they mean to me.

Looking at this picture and I never thought that my Happily Ever After would look like this, only on missing is our future baby or baby's to come.

Are we ready for this new chapter in life coming up? 
Yes and No
One thing for sure is that as long as I have my family around, anything can come our way and we will come out stronger.

Excited to see what these years hold for Miguel.

One Proud Mom
