Saturday 8th October 2016 saw to the birth of my son – Ruben Offen. I think my first words, when he was born, were “He’s real”; this tiny soul was just as quickly whisked away as he was put on my chest in the first place. I looked over to my left, as they placed him down, I noticed his long, flat feet with toes sprawling.
I would tell you details, but this isn’t a birth story. This is the beginning of his life, that he shares with us. His first week was spent in hospital, and each day he has taught us more + more. He has opened us up to a whole new world and will continue to teach us.
