Early this Christmas season found me crying yet again as Jessica and Patrick welcomed a second son into their family, although this time the tears fell for an altogether different reason. Not only were we present, but in a surprise gesture we hadn’t expected or requested Jessica invited us to stay in the room for the actual birth— at a discreet position behind her head. Together we watched transfixed as Baby Connor came into the world before our very eyes. Three weeks later, I’m still processing that heart stopping moment. I’m determined not to lose the wonder of it all. Holding an infant baby boy at Christmas time is a priceless experience, but life has taught me just how easy it is to become desensitized to the miracles around us.
