For those of you who don’t know: I’ve always been afraid of having kids, ever since I was one myself. The reason for that is that I’m adopted. I don’t have a family history to draw upon, and that worries me simply because I’m a worrier. Add to that the fact that I like to have all the bases covered – and in this case, I can’t – and you have a formula for nervousness. The cure? Fervent prayer!
Naturally, Stacy is all lit up like a mother-to-be should be. Her excitement is enough to dwarf any fears I might have. While a baby means drastic change, and I don’t care much for drastic change, I might as well use the momentum from adjusting to marriage and just keep the adjustments coming. If you’ve got any parental advice, I’d love to hear it.
