One year ago tonight, I sat alone in a hospital room with my newborn son pondering our future. I didn’t know then how his smile would brighten my day, what simple joy each new progression of his growth would bring, and most of all what a lovely boy he would become. I am so grateful to my surrogate in California who made this all possible, and for every day of our first year... and can’t wait for the next. Happy Birthday sweet little Ben. (📸: John Mayer) #dada
