Epilogue: Table For Three


video

About an hour after finding out that we're having a girl, my family was sitting at the kitchen table eating dinner. After taking a bite of food, a thought popped into my head and I blurted out, "Shit!" My parents and Huyen looked at me with concern. My mom said, "What's wrong?" So I told everyone what was wrong: "I have to pay for a wedding."

The stress of having to pay for a wedding (and let's not forget college) is nothing compared to the joy we're feeling about having a baby. Huyen and I couldn't be more excited to have our blond-haired blue-eyed baby (shhhh, don't tell Huyen that's not gonna happen) and we can already feel our love for each other reaching a new level. As every parent and expecting parent knows, all you want is the best in life for your children. That said, I've got two or three decades to convince our little girl to get married in Vietnam. Until that time though, I'll be posting occasional stories/pictures/videos on Ahoy Hanoi.
