Rachel and I announced in worship yesterday that she is pregnant. I announced via facebook and twitter just after that.
It is very exciting and a bit intimidating to think about becoming a father again. I have a daughter, Robbie, who will turn 21 before this child is born in May.
On one hand, I’ve covered a lot of ground since I was 25 and welcomed Robbie home. On another, I am excited about this new opportunity.
Especially since I began working with at-risk youth, I have been acutely aware how important parenting is. Thus the intimidation of bringing a child into the world in 2010.
But I’ve got an awesome partner in Rachel, and have much more excitement than intimidation.
There is much more to this story; I’ll keep you posted.
