August 7th 2012 has to be one of the most memorable days of my life. I had one of the most life changing experiences that day. This was the day my daughter was born and I became a father. I have had a lot of memorable experiences in my life, but nothing compares to this day. This was also the day that my life changed for the better.

My daughter was not due until August 13th yet my girlfriend was telling me that she was in a lot of pain on August 3rd and that she thought she was going to have the baby early. She left home from work early that day because she was in so much pain. After not having the baby over the weekend she went back to work that Monday, August 6th. She was still not feeling well that day, so she talked to her boss and ask if she could go on maternity leave early. I was not expecting her to go into labor that day, so when I got home that day I was surprised to hear that her water had just broke shortly before I arrived and she was ready to go to the hospital. This is when I knew everything was about to change.

When I heard my daughter cry for the first time I was so excited. When I saw my daughter for the first time the first thing I noticed was that her nose looked just like mine. I was so nervous when they told me to cut the umbilical cord. When I first looked into her eyes I could do nothing but cry tears of joy. She was the most precious and beautiful little girl I have ever seen. I have never experienced so much joy and one day and that is why this is the most memorable day of my life.

    The most memorable time in my life was my daughter's cleft palate surgery. It was January 4th when my daughter and I had to leave El Paso, TX to take a trip to Austin, TX. It was a long drive for a little baby like her at the time she was only two years old. Early that morning my parents took us to the bus station.The bus was leaving at 6 a.m. in the morning to get to Austin, TX at midnight. My daughter and I felt it was the longest drive ever as the bus was very full and kept stopping. Finally, we arrived to Austin at midnight. I had to walk around for some time until I found a cab to take us to the hotel. I was scared and nervous. I was all alone with my daughter in a city we didn't know. We arrived to the hotel and finally felt safe and some peace. As soon as we walked in the room, I called my family and let them know we were good.…

    I then realized the look on the doctor’s face and that in it spoke the words that were unspoken. She started explaining to us that the mother was only 22 ½ weeks along and that she was going into premature labor. We had a decision to make -we could either let her naturally go into labor with the baby being breech (this will cause a head catch) which lessens the chance of survival or do an emergency C- section. For the first time in my life I had no way of fixing this. This was out of my hands and into the hands of God. I felt alone, desperate and frightened. I just kept thinking this wasn’t supposed to happen to me. I’m a good person! I go to church; I help people in need, and I greet people with a smile to brighten their day. So the question kept popping in mind why did this happen to me?…

    I can still remember the day the doctors told me I was pregnant. That immediate sense of fear swallowed me whole and time seemed to stand still. It was not until a couple of months later that I realized there was no changing the situation and that I needed to make the very best of it. Finding out I was pregnant started out as a very scary experience but ultimately was one of the most positive and rewarding experiences I have ever endured. After the fear settled a little bit I was able to really start thinking about my life and what I needed to change. Up until that day at the doctors I was living day by day doing what I needed to do for me and no one else. I had no job, I was living with my parents and my only source of excitement came from the local bar rooms late at night. I knew things needed to change and I set out on a mission to make that change happen. Alone and afraid I was able to swallow my pride and ask my family for help and the guidance to get my life back on track before this baby entered our world. All through my pregnancy I knew I loved my unborn son more than I have ever loved anything in this world. I knew that my life was no longer mine…

    It was almost 5am on July 17, 1996, when I was rushed to the hospital. I was balled up in the back seat of my mother in laws car, biting down on a towel because the pain was so unbearable.
