We refer to all of our our close friends as Connor's "aunts" and "uncles" because to us, they really are like family.
Unfortunately, last week we received the awful news that our good friend, Adam, passed away. He'd moved from Charleston to Chicago about a year ago and hadn't yet had a chance to meet Connor, which makes me very, very sad. Before he moved, I was still pregnant with Connor and whenever we'd see Adam he would always ask to see my belly, which may sound weird to some, but it never bothered me because it was just the way Adam was....
Although he and Connor never had a chance to meet, we will always tell Connor funny stories about his Uncle Adam, who likely would have taken him skateboarding and made him stay up way past his bedtime.
We love you, Adam, and will miss you very much. xo
