I love your answers especially 19. I was 26 also when we got to bring Andrew home. I think being a dad is hard just in a different way, I can't imagine the pressure they feel at times - and sleep? What's that? I suppose someday I will be in a new phase of life when I will know what that is again. Hope you have a great week and a happy mother's day!
