An Awfully Big Adventure

Kai is my proof that magic exists.

Becoming a dad was something that I always feared. I feared it for a number of reasons. One being that I never saw what a dad looked like while I was growing up. A dad was just some wispy idea of this other person in the house that my friends had. In fact, even into adulthood I find that I connect with women far easier than I do with men.

The other part of the fear was believing that I would have to stop every pursuit of every dream I have.

Pretty dismal outlook on becoming a father, huh?

Well despite my fears, Erin told me about ten months ago that I would be a dad.

In the movie, Hook, at the end, Wendy says to Peter, "So... your adventures are over."

Which is what I thought becoming a dad would mean

But Peter replies, "Oh, no. To live... To live will be an awfully big adventure."

Which is actually what becoming a dad has meant

I knew the moment I heard that baby's scream in the delivery room that my adventure was just beginning and the love that I've experienced since meeting my son is nothing short of magic.

Kai is my proof that magic exists.

And all of those fears that I thought were so real... shadows.

And the love I have with Kai... pure light that's dispelled every shadow.
