So yes, in a few short months, I am going to be a dad. It's no surprise. We'd prayed for a child and have been blessed with one...and sort of on schedule. We wanted to wait at least 5 years after we were married and we found out we were expected a month after our 5th anniversary.
Now I don't know what the future holds. A lot of my friends who are already fathers (and many other people) are quick to tell us how much it changes your life. My inside voice typically responds with "DUH"...of course it changes everything. In the mean time, we live life like we know how to...love God, pray that we will be adequate parents and not screw this up. I have seen good parents...I just hope I can be good enough. Amy will be spectacular, no doubt.
Still...Buzzfeed captures the experience of this process all too well in this youtube video
