Happy Writerly Wednesday!
From the Writerly Corner Crew:
Aimee and Braydon were only 17 when Aidan was born. "Too young", they said. "Too immature", they said. "Put the baby up for adoption", they said. Aimee agreed. Braydon didn’t.
Aimee conceded and signed over full custody. Seventeen years old with a newborn. "Life will hard", they said. "You will regret this", they said. "You are throwing your future away", they said.
“Daddy, what are they doing?”
“The daddy sea lion is playing with his son.”
“Like you play with me?”
“Yes, just like how we play.”
Braydon watched Aidan intently as the child watched the sea lions with such curiosity.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
“A daddy, just like you.”
“You are the best daddy in the world!”
A future filled with watching Aidan grow, learn, explore, mature, and succeed is not a future wasted; it is a future I would die for.
Happy Father’s Day!!
