Tweet I'm sure everyone has hopes and dreams for their children. These are mine:
I wish for my son to never doubt how much he is loved.
I wish for my son to know that his home is a place where he can feel safe & secure.
I wish for my son to learn how to love and respect other people through the example of his mother & father's love and respect for each other.
I wish for my son to respect himself.
I wish for my son the ability to express his feelings without fear or doubt.
I wish for my son to learn that what you own is not who you are and that who you are is far more important than what you own.
I wish for my son to understand that, although he is one small part of a much larger community, he can and will impact the world around him in some way.
and...with a nod to my husband:
I wish for my son to be left-handed and the best pitcher ever recruited by the Chicago Cubs.
