Everyone thought that he needed practice being a father. He was 43 years old, what experience would he have. Plus, he never did show interest. I was never worried. When the time came, he was there ready and was there through it all. And when a little girl was delivered, he looked up with the biggest smile on his face and excitement in his eyes and said, “It’s a girl! You knew how much I wanted a girl! She’s the most beautiful baby I have ever seen!”
Postscript: I always loved him, but that day I knew I was such a lucky woman. He still an amazing husband and father.
