When I was pregnant with Umberto, I wanted a girl. I was only a little disappointed to find out I was having a boy. When I held in my arms for the first time, it honestly didn't matter. And it never mattered since. My only son. My sweet beautiful boy who taught me all about real joy.
There is a lovely quietness to Umberto. Being with him is calming. There is something amazing about being with Umberto that just makes one feel at ease and at peace. It is an amazing gift.
