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.

Daddy and Mommy






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。
