I haven’t posted here in a very long time.
In a matter of days I’m going to be a father again. We’re going to have a baby girl. She’s going to shape and change my life, Kelly’s life and Julian’s life.
I couldn’t be more proud of my wife. It’s been a long and difficult road. We’ve been through things I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready to talk about it all. But our family is about to be complete.
Every day my wife and my son teach me what it means to be a human being. I both fear and love the challenges ahead for my little boy. He’s going to have to learn to share us with another person. I hope he remembers this time as his parents loving him to pieces while welcoming another person into our lives.
I hope I’ll live up to the standards I’ve set for myself. I hope I do even half as well as my parents and Kelly’s parents did raising us.
Here’s to the future, to love and to family. And thank you to our family for loving us and supporting us despite our (mostly my) flaws.
I know this is a bit saccharine. But this is how I feel, and I couldn’t be more happy and hopeful.
