This has been one of the most incredible weeks of my life. I was blessed with the ability to adopt my son. I met him when he was 3 years old. I'll never forget the day I met him. I wanted to impress the little man so I told Mariela that I wanted to take him to Disney. That day I will never forget how nervous I was.
Will he like me? What will I say to him? I knew how much his mother loved him and just hoped he would give me a chance. The doorbell rang and he walked into my house like he owned it. "Hi John, my name is Alexander". And the rest is history.
Now, I put him to bed every night and we say prayers together. Before I leave his room and turn the lights off, I always say, "Sleep tight, I love you Son". He always says, "Good night Daddy, I love you too". Best sound in the world.
Thank you for all the well wishes about the adoption. I asked Marissa to make a video with pictures and videos from my wedding to give you an inside look at my little family. Enjoy. #Blessed
