Becoming a parent is like being thrown into water over our heads - it's a sink or swim proposition from the very first moment. And like swimming, it can be terrifying, and it can only be learned through experience. It is an act of faith to bring a child into the world. At some point we have to simply trust that, with God's help, we can do it.
I hope we can float together once a week or so and muse a little about life, baptism, faith and raising our kids. Come on in, the water's fine.
