I’m A Father…

Adam & MeLast night I witnessed a miracle…
The miracle of life…
And what a miracle it was…

Last night, Monday 28/08/2006 at exactly 9:35PM, in Clinique Avicenne – El Manar, my lovely amazing wife gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy…

The birth experience was so incredibly overwhelming for both of us; how we both felt when the baby was born and we got to see him for the very first time is a feeling that no words can describe and no other thing in life can duplicate; a feeling that can only be shared by people who have gone through the same experience…
It’s just out of this world…

The name we chose for our baby boy is “Adam”…
Why this name in particular? For many reasons, among them the fact that it’s one of the very few names that exist in almost every language and are pretty much pronounced the same wherever you go; it’s also a reference to “Adam”, the first man God created, which we found very suiting for our first child; it’s also mainly because we both loved the name and because it fitted the baby so well…

How do I feel?
I’m overwhelmed, flying, floating above the clouds, happy, overjoyed, proud, overprotective, confused, vulnerable, afraid, responsible, confident, strong, and a list of mixed incredible feelings that I’m still sorting out in my head, but above all I feel touched and changed, I know I’ll never be the same person again.
My priorities in life shifted the instant I laid eyes on my baby son; nothing in this world is dearer to my heart or more important than him and my little family…
The love I have for this baby and for his mother could fill up the heavens above…

I’m a father…
And if there is one thing that I am absolutely sure of is that I’ll be doing the possible and the impossible to be the best father ever for my baby son…
