6 years ago I found out I was going to be a father. When Lucas’ mother emerged from my apartment bathroom sobbing with the positive pregnancy test in hand.
She was crying because we had only been together a month and was afraid of how I would react. Would I just peace out?
I remember what my Dad said to me when I proudly told him the news. “I think you should consider taking care it”. Now my father isn’t mean-spirited but he loves me and he loves Lucas. But at 24 I had so much going for me in both my life and career. He knew how much my life was going to change even if I didn’t yet. . But we both knew that I wasn’t walking away from this responsibility. And I never have.
Even though Luke’s mom and I decided not to stay together. No matter how much my life changed and no matter how unhappy I presently am. I would still make the same decisions. I love all my boys. If she never got pregnant I would never had lit a fire under my ass and I wouldn’t be where I am today.
