Gimme a C!

Gimme a U!

Gimme a T!

Gimme an E!

last year at this time

it was one year ago today

that i became a mommy

she didn't announce herself with two pink lines on a little stick near the bathroom sink

i never felt her kick my ribs

or see her first smile

i was a new mommy with a baby half a world away

with empty arms

and it hurt

but one year ago today

she became my daughter

she made this family of four

become a family of five

Ethiopian law said it was so

and how sweet it was
