I thought for a long time that Brady would be an only child, and in many ways would have been content with that, but I wanted so badly to give him someone to share his childhood with. Yes, he’ll have friends, yes, he’ll have cousins, but none of them will share the same parents and traditions and homes and memories. I think of all the wonderful things they’ll share and I also can’t help but think of the heartbreak they will have as well. One day Guy and I will be gone and I want them to have someone to sit and cry with when that happens.
I hope they are close and love each other as much as I want them to. The other day Brady kept giving her hugs and saying, “I wub her, mom.”
I’m not sure there is more in this world that I could be proud of.
