The conversation did not have a sense of urgency, nor was it forced or uncomfortable. We decided that we were ready to have another child. I have always wanted to have another child but it did not make sense given Jacob's diagnoses and treatments and therapies and surgery. Until now. As a colleague noted, it is a testament to how well Jacob is doing because I would never take anything away from Jacob, especially my care. He is doing so well and he will be an amazing big brother. Jacob can never be replaced. Neither can Matthew. Each is my most special child and so too will be my third.
