Things to remember from 2005:

  • Two pink lines in February.
  • Seeing the blip and hearing the thump of our baby’s tiny heart.
  • Taking the MCAT in April.
  • Taking three finals in four days, just like old times.
  • Holding my breath, submitting my AMCAS application.
  • Seeing the shadowy images of a real head, real torso, real limbs…a real baby girl.
  • Buying a new interview suit.
  • Learning that all of my hard work was worth it.
  • Watching a spectacle so common, yet so unbelievable and beautiful.
  • Holding our little Emerson for the first time, brushing her baby-soft cheek.
  • Learning to care for her.
  • Seeing her smile.

Things to look forward to:

  • Seeing her learn.
  • Closing up shop, blazing new trails.
  • Jumping into an academic hellhole…and loving it.
  • Building our family, step by step.
