Well, I saw your face for the first time last night and I couldn’t believe I was finally looking at my son. We had waited so long for the “call” but when I looked at your tiny hands and your giant eyes I knew it was worth the wait. I maybe got two hours of sleep last night because of the excitement I was feeling. I kept thinking of all of the things I wanted to teach you and all of the things I wanted to tell you about myself. I also spent half the night trying to recreate the telling of “the shot” (Kane’s game winning shot to win the Stanley Cup) so I can see your eyes light up with the same excitement I felt. Luckily I have the game on Blu Ray so we can watch it over and over.
When we first got on the wait list last year I started saving things (sorry K, mostly sports related) and putting them in a box so one day I could sit down with you and describe all of the thoughts and feelings I had while waiting for you. It’s been such an emotional roller coaster but again after I saw your face I know it has been one of the best things I have ever had to wait for. I can’t wait until we get the news that we get to bring you home.
We love you so much,
