Union took to Instagram two days before the bash to commemorate her tot’s special day with a vulnerable message.

She began: ‘Scared to hold you. Scared to burp you. Scared to reveal I have no clue what I’m doing. 

‘Scared to go to work. Scared to stay home. Scared when you sleep. Scared when you wake up. Scared I’m not living up to some impossible standard of motherhood.

‘Scared I’d lose myself. Scared I’d be exposed as a failure, as less than, not as good as, not as comfortable as, not as… anything. 

‘But there you were, everyday, looking up at me, like “gurl, you got this!” 

‘When I let go of my fears of judgement and just did my best and recognized that my best would and could change from day to day and life would magically go on … Man, I finally allowed myself to just enjoy you and relax into the peace of imperfection.

‘1 year in and your whole village stays smiling. The family you know and all the cyber aunties and uncles you may never meet, we celebrate you.’

Union and Wade experienced nine miscarriages before welcoming Kaavia into the world via surrogacy on Nov. 7, 2018. 

The couple opened up to Oprah Winfrey in a SuperSoul Sunday interview about their long journey to parenthood. 

‘I want to grow old with you. I want our miracle baby, but I want you,’ Wade said about making the final decision to pass on a natural birth.
