This is my son. I cannot believe how much I love him. That may seem crazy to some people -- that sense of disbelief about one's love for a child -- but it's true; I simply cannot believe the amount of love I feel for him. There's so much love that I cannot imagine how it is contained in my body. I have been caring for Desmond for 9 months now, and a lot is about to change.
After a grueling job search, I've got a contract for a freelance project that's going to require a lot of time and concentration. That means someone else needs to be with him during the days. I'm also being considered for a part time position, and I'm trying not to jump the gun, but I think the job is mine.
I am going to miss that little face during the days.
