Ready to Grow Again
Well, we’ve been giving it a lot of thought lately, and Maria and I have decided that we are ready to grow our family again, and welcome a new child into our home. We’ve been extremely blessed to have Oscar and Skyla enter our lives, and we’re grateful that we’ll continue being involved with Skyla and her family once they are reunited as we have agreed to be her Godparents. But we’ve always known that we wanted at least two children, and we’re as ready now as we’ll ever be.
In truth, the foolishness of waiting when it comes to creating our family has been a painful lesson for us. We’ve come to realize that waiting may seem sensible, but time has a way of sneaking up on you — stealing away the precious moments that could be spent collecting memories of a life well-lived. It’s better to strive for our hearts desire now. Otherwise we risk waking up one day to find we are without anything other the aching dreams of what may have been.
