I have to admit, when we first found out we were expecting a second child, I was a little ( ok!, very nervous ). But time has passed and this new journey has become a very exciting moment. I find myself going back to very young age, when I first realized that my goal in life was to one day become a father. How I came to this realization was through the inspiration of a magazine illustration, back in the mid-70s, I was young, but I remember it very well, If you can imagine this art illustration: A father in his contruction wear, ( hard hat and all ) coming home through the picket fence and to this glee his wife is leaning against him, welcoming him home with a warm embrace and a kiss, to the bottom of the image,..on both sides of his legs, a little girl to one side and to the other side a little boy, both holding on to both legs of the father with bright eyes, excited about the arrival of thier father, and during all this time, the father is just over-joyed for such welcome,....

..this was the moment I told myself I wanted to be a father.

well,..I have become such, and a blessing it has been.



...just incase, we are expecting a little boy,..and his name will be

Diego Andres Luis.
