This past Saturday was Kimball’s birthday. I just wanted to say how grateful I am for this awesome kid. When he was born he was so tiny and he seemed so fragile. We had tried so hard for what felt like so long to have a child, and we were so excited to welcome Kimball into our lives. Now he is 9 years old, and I’m just amazed and him. Sometimes I feel like my love for him is so big it will make my heart burst.

I have long wanted to write our story from the beginning — the very beginning. I think I will start. I’m sure I’ll get some stuff wrong along the way. It’s going to take some time, so I’ll have to tell it in installments. In the end, hopefully it will be a way to share with all of you, and a way to have a good record for our family history.

Stay tuned …
