As I hold our daughter I get choked up and think of all the months of morning (afternoon and evening) sickness, the aches and pains, heartburn, swelling, and finally the labor that she went through in order to make this possible. What an incredible person to give so freely of herself in order for us to have a family. Her generous spirit and loving soul is something that I pray my daughter has gotten from her; that and her appreciation for John Hughes films and all things 80s. Megan can do a perfect impression of Molly Ringwald’s dance in “The Breakfast Club”, and it makes me laugh every time. She can recite practically every line in “Joe Dirt”, she has been late to work to sit with a dog she saw get hit by car, just so that it didn’t have to die alone, and finally she had a baby for a gay couple to fulfill their greatest wish. For all of these reasons and SO MANY more, I love her with all of my heart. I am so grateful that we are all stuck with each other.
I love you Megan.
