Nine years ago today my amazing wife Kelly gave birth to our second child, she was the most perfect little girl that I had ever seen. A few days later, we brought her home where she and her brother Cole promptly fell to sleep together on our sofa. I couldn't imagine then, as I was taking what would soon become on of my favorite photographs in the world, just how much her presence in our lives would touch our family.
Since that day my children have shown me parts of life, the world, and of myself, that I didn't see before they arrived. These things were always there, yet somehow invisible to me. I never knew how much joy my heart could hold, how much pain I could withstand, I didn't realize the depths of the human spirit or how vast my own potential was.
And I didn't know what that word 'love' truly meant or how it's power would touch my soul...
Happy Birthday Arden!
