Perhaps a black and white shot of your wife and newborn son is cliche, but I don’t mind that. Quite simply, there hasn’t been anything more meaningful in my life than the birth of Leo and the impact it has had on Leslie and me. We didn’t plan for him, but giving birth as expats in Germany, far from our closest friends and family, somehow bonded us all within such a short period of time it was nothing short of astonishing. Leslie never looked more beautiful than she did at that moment, and the smile on her face as she held Leo still fills me with joyful emotion.
