Dear Zoe

Dear Zoe.

I miss you more than words can describe, and I can’t wait to meet you.

Two of the most important and most loved ladies of my life. I love you both.

Zoe bean, I loved you from the moment you were a plus sign on the pee stick. And Zoe, the best friend I ever had, I wish and hope your little namesake niece (who is kicking up a storm as I type this) will grow up to be just as good of a person as you were. I know she’ll bring me as much and more of the joy you brought to my life…

And I don’t think any of us could have asked for a more perfect and storybook ending of a father for you. Except this is our beginning. A chance to carry on the love we once felt and let it grow more and more with each smile and tear along the way.

Remember that Transplants song? I can’t listen to it anymore without crying:

“…for every life that’s taken there’s another child born, it doesn’t make it better and it doesn’t make it right, I’m just thankful every day that you came in my life…”

I miss you Zoe, and I can’t wait to meet you.
