the scar from your birth reminds me of many things…

the fear i carried during your high risk pregnancy

the apprehension of experiencing a c-section and the healing required of it

the elation of your safe entry into the world mixed with my disgust for the way my body looked

five years later, your scar is a miracle to me

i look at my body and admire its strength

i look at my body and feel empowered

i look at my body and smile because you forever left your mark on it

happy birthday to our little miracle—we love you and we like you and the world is better with you in it

meeting our miracle five years ago
