I just want to extend my sincerest gratitude to my friends who helped me organize my son’s birthday party last 19th. I couldn’t have done it without you guys.

I am writing this a few hours before my scheduled flight. In a few hours, I will be some thousand meters above the ground on a plane. Let me share to all of you what I am feeling at this very moment.
I am sure you guys know how I am feeling right now, as I have been writing my excitement for the last weeks. My coming home is one of the best things that are happening to me this year. How I looked forward to this event in my life.
I feel like my life has just began. I am not taking the good things that has happened to me during the last years for granted. But I just feel like I am evolving into a different person quickly. When I left home, I was a husband. When I worked abroad, I was single again (I mean, I lived alone in a house again). Now, when i come back home, I will be a father.
First-time fathers usually adapt to their new role slowly, because they grow as their baby grow. They learn to nurture their small family life as they lived with their loved ones together. But for me, the baby has grown up when I see him, and I will have no more time to adapt to the role. I am the father, and I have to be it as soon as I see him in the airport.
My home will be different now. My married life has a new focus. My family will not be the same anymore.
I just can’t wait to be home and begin this exciting new life.
Today, I heard my parents talking over the phone about me. They said they need to bring me out today. Mom was scheduled for a caesarian section this afternoon so I could come out safely.
At 3pm mom was brought to the operating room. The doctors made a cut slowly into mom’s tummy until they finally saw me, and brought me out to this world! That was amazing!
The nurses gave my first bath and brought me to the nursery. I was placed in a small plastic crib which was later pushed near the glass window. On the other side of the window, I saw my relatives for the first time. They were all smiling. They seemed to be very happy with my arrival!
Thanks for the very warm welcome! I am so glad to see all of you!
