I'm Going To Be A Dad!

Yup. You read the title correctly. Hard to believe, isn't it? My wife and I have been waiting for over 8 years to have kids, and finally, the opportunity has presented itself. Through adoption, we will be having a baby girl here in the next week or so. She is due on the 31st (Halloween) and we couldn't be more excited. So much to do, and so little time. At any event, I'm so excited, that I can hardly contain myself. After telling family and friends, I'm announcing it to the world that I"M GOING TO BE A FATHER! AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Congratulations man.
    My wife and I are also expecting our second child. It is the greatest sensation you'll ever have, you'll never be able to eat or sleep like you used to but still ti is the greatest.

    Congrats! This is so amazing that you got the adoption! It must be hard to be ready on such short notice, but just remember that all your baby really needs is love. This is because if you love her, you will make sure her needs are met. She is counting on you.

    Good luck Aaron!
