Life As We Knew It changed for everyone on September 11, 2001, a terrible, terrible day.
But a different September 11, the one in 1974, was the day that changed life forever for Joe and Me in such an amazing way. For that was the day Tom was born.
After many years of trying to achieve a pregnancy, everything we dreamed of arrived in the form of an 8-1/2 pound boy who has brought joy and more joy to our lives with every passing year.
Here is a picture of Tom on the day we met Anastasia, the woman who would become his wife.
On September 11 each year we remember the horror. But we also remember -- and are thankful for -- the joy of Tom.
