D Day

D.–

I’ll never forget the moment you told me we had a son.  I am so grateful that you were able to speak softly to him, reassuring him right after he was brought into this world, during that agonizing wait before he could be in my arms. I know that your voice, the first one he ever heard, is painted beautifully and permanently on his soul, a source of strength and comfort to him for the rest of his life.

I love that you gave him his first bath and changed his first diaper. I look forward to so many other firsts for you and Oscar: first bike ride, first camping trip, first fish caught, first father-son garden, first video game played together.

Thank you for giving me the gift of a son who is the joy of our lives. And thank you for making every day, not just that first day, magical.

Love, S. & O.
