You are over due!

Dear Son,

Where are you? You are past your due date! Everyone has been asking about you, wondering when you are to come home. We have no answers. Though we are rather impatient to meet you, I hope you are happy and healthy wherever you are. Just about every day your pops says, "man, I'm ready to go get my son!" We are so thankful for you already. Even though we have yet to meet, you have changed our lives for the better. We have met new friends, had wonderful unexpected conversations, and felt feelings we would never ever have had if it weren't for your precious little life.

Every night you are the one constant prayer I have. I pray you are healthy and loved and given lots and lots of attention. I get chills knowing that any day now I could see your face for the first time! Son, we love you!

-Mamma and Papa
