You made me a father and you made me stop and think about how I behave towards certain people. Your mother, for instance. She, there's something different about her. You know, she drives me crazy because she does everything wrong, but then somehow it works for her. You would've loved her. I mean, you already love her. I know that, but you can hear her heart beat, right? You could probably hear her yelling because your mother made a lot of noise, you know? But she loves you, and I love you. And I wish to God that . . . okay . . . it's going to be a long time before I hold you, before you see my face or hear your mother's voice, but don't be scared of that. I know we had other plans. But plans are plans. They change. I don't want you to be scared. Because everything's going to be all right, little boy. We'll still love each other.

I would like to give him a bath. You know, watch him relax in the water, checking out his toes and fingers. Then I’d diaper him, well, maybe not diaper him. I’d get him dressed, you know . . . put on one of those hats you bought so his head wouldn't get cold. And then you can feed him. That would have been nice, you know, watching you nurse. And if the day wasn't too hot, we could take him and Michael to the park. We could spread a blanket on the grass. He could look up at the sky while we played dump trucks with his brother. And then maybe we could bring along some stuffed animals so he could reach out for them, you know, and watch while he learned to lift his head up and roll over. And then we'd hold our hand . . . hold our hands out to him, you know, and he'd grab them with his little fingers and we'd look at each other like a couple of idiots, saying how strong he was, how perfect. And then he'd look at us and he'd know that he didn't have to be afraid because his Mom and Dad were there and we would do anything to keep him safe.
