What a year. I have more gratitude than I can ever express - to my daughter, our families and our surrogate and her supportive family. But none greater than to my amazing husband @danielschmeder who has been an incredible parent and partner, exceeding even my highest hopes. Much love to you Patsy and Pop.
Having kids is not always picture perfect; Most of what you see is happy faces, but the truth is that at least 50% of our time we spend on arguing, negotiations, calming down endless whining and basically living your life for someone else, not for yourself. For a gay man who came out at 18 and got used to focus his life around himself it’s especially not easy. But like Alex says, our greatest hardships are forms of our greatest joy. #pictureimperfect#dysfunctionalfamily
