I have to admit we often had feelings of unpreparedness and inadequacy, doubting our capability of being good parents, and already feeling guilty for not being “optimal” parents for our child.
But we are trying our best and we pray, constantly, that God takes care of the rest.
I’ve always been in awe of Mel’s grit, creativity, grace, boundless energy, and ability to see the glass half full.
We’re at week #36 as I’m writing this post and having seen how she’s handled all the effects of pregnancy such as the backaches, fatigue and nausea all while hustling like a mad lady to manage aher businesses, has left me both dumbfounded and inspired. I know for certain that she’ll be applying the same focus and determination to provide and care for our son.
Being the youngest of my family and not having any nieces or nephews, I don’t really know what to expect. Mel, on the other hand, has three younger siblings all of whom are 12 or more years her junior. I’ve always been admiration of how close she is to her siblings and how she’s cared for an guided them over the years.
