Thank you for your support

On this day of thanks giving, I am thankful for your love, your friendship, prayers, one-on-one meetings, phone calls, text messages, and notes. I truly felt the "village" envisioned in my mind manifest; I got 5 bids for godparents! I thank you for your faith in me as father. You all see things in me that I don't always see in myself.

I also want to thank you for allowing me to be imperfect. Through blogging and sharing my life journey with you, I've come to realize that sometimes the things we think we need to hide the most are things that have the greatest impact on the world when shared. I received many messages saying that "To My Unborn Child" resonated with many people's personal experiences.

The results are in

The child is healthy, but it is not mine. After getting an ultrasound, we discovered that the 6-week old seed was too young to have grown out of our relationship which ended 12 weeks ago. Though I was prepared to accept my role as father, I was very much afraid too. The ironic part of it all is that I grew out of a very similar situation as a child and I didn't turn out that bad…did I? :)

The lessons learned

1. Children need more than just a "nuclear family", they need community to grow.
2. Parenthood starts today with the youth in our community.
3. Make love to who you love (and who loves you).
4. Birth is always something to rejoice about (regardless of circumstances).
5. There are opportunities to give birth to Love all around us every day.
6. Life is cra-mazing (crazy + amazing).
