Letter To Aidan: Your First Christmas


Dear Aidan,

You are 3.5 months old, which seems like such a short time and yet we feel like we've known you forever. 

If someone had told us a year ago that we'd be holding a baby in our arms this year, we probably would not have have believed it. To be able to celebrate our first Christmas as a family of three is such an incredible blessing to us.


Although we are deeply flawed human beings, by the grace of God we have been tasked with the immense responsibility of raising you and we do not that take that for granted. Our lives are much more complete with you, and He is constantly moulding our character.

You are the most beautiful thing we have even seen, more perfect than we ever could have imagined, and we truly cherish every moment that we share with you. You make us so proud with every smile, every babble, every gesture and kick. Your life now is filled with firsts, and it is such a joy to see the world anew through you.

May you never lose that twinkle in your eye and sense of wide-eyed wonder at your surroundings. May you learn and understand both cultures that you have been born into- don't forget that you are half American and half Singaporean! May you always be filled with a sense of purpose and adventure and fearlessly pursue God's path for your life.

Merry Christmas, our precious Aidan. Daddy and Mommy love you so very dearly, and we can't wait to know you more and the man that you'll become.

Love,
Daddy and Mommy

亲爱的仁汉,

你三个半月大了。虽然时间不长,我们感觉像认识你一辈子了。

如果有人一年前告诉我们说今年怀里会抱着一个宝宝,我们可能不会相信他。今年可以一家三口一起庆祝第一个圣诞节对我们说是一种幸福。

虽然爸爸妈妈深有缺陷,靠着上帝的恩典,我们有慎重的责任把你养大成人,而我们不会把这责任当做理所当然的。有了你我们的生活更完整,而上帝也在不断的塑造我们的品格。

你是我们一生中看过最美丽的宝宝,比我们想象中更完美,而我们真的很珍惜和你分享的每一个时刻。你的每一个笑容,每一个声音,每一个手势和脚踢都让我们感到骄傲。你现在的生活充满了第一次,而能通过你重新看世界让我们感到很快乐。

希望你永不失去你的眼中的闪烁和对周围的好奇。希望你能学习和理解你出生的两个文化- 别忘了你是半美国人半新加坡人!希望你的生活永远充满目的和冒险精神,无畏地追求上帝为你选择的道路。

宝贝仁汉,圣诞节快乐。爸爸妈妈非常爱你,我们也迫不及待能够多认识你和你将成为的男子汉。

爸爸和妈妈
