"For You Have Swings to Be Swung On..."

Tonight, I met a new member of my family.

Of my chosen family.

One day old Grayson Coon-Hobson, Alanda and Steve's beautiful 6 pound son.

As I held him in my arms, all I could think about was how my father told me of how he would hold me in one arm while turning the page of his text book with the other as he studied for his college finals.

I don't know whether I want to be married or not, should that option become available to me...

But I do know that I want children. I've always wanted children. Maybe holding Grayson will be just the push I need to once again look seriously into adopting a child. Hopefully.

Much love to Alanda, Steve and little Grayson.

Wow - that makes my non-existent ovaries ache with jealousy. Seriously.

What a beautiful family.

And I hope you do get to be a dad. You'd be a great one.
