To my Harvey

(from john)...

To my Harvey,

It's hard to believe that you really are almost here. My emotions have been all over the place since first finding out that you were alive; nine months worth. You'll understand that someday. 

You are my little buddy.

Soon I will hold you. I will comfort you. I will teach you how to throw a ball. I will teach you about music. I will take care of you in ways you won't understand until you're in my position someday. 

The things that your Grandpa Tom has told me my whole life make sense now.

I'm promising to spend my whole life teaching you love, and love is many things. I'm also promising to spend my whole life teaching you the lessons that are in this Jars of Clay song, "Boys (Lesson One)."

I love you, my man. - Your Dad
