When I start to think about the arrival of this baby, I struggle to put all of my thoughts and emotions and excitement into words.
Meet Caitlin and Ronald. I met Caitlin in college nine years ago. We were night and day different when you looked at us. Me in my hoodie and ponytail, her in her pink suede knee high boots. But as we started to talk and get to know each other, all of the differences became surface, and all of the important stuff came out.
This baby is coming into a world filled with love and opportunity. They are being welcomed in by countless people who love them already, we’re just two of the many.
Our weekend in the Rocky Mountains was perfect. It was raining as we were driving out of Banff, I was a bit panicked, but holy man it turned out perfectly. We laughed so hard we had tears in our eyes. I fell in the snow a few times. We were up to our knees getting to the perfect spot.
I can’t wait to meet you and watch you grow little one. I love you so much already.
