    Wow honey, this brought tears to my eyes. I’ve been thinking a lot about your family and you are in my heart. That’s a brave, beautiful young man you’ve raised.

    I am so ridiculously excited for you. This is such a poignant glimpse into a boy becoming a man. I am so happy you chose to share this with us. We’re out here, Y, cheering you all on, so proud of both your son and of you.

    I am sitting in Norway in a hotel room, and suddenly with one image I am completely transported into the heart of your family, sharing a moment that is at once so intensely personal and specific, but at the same time, so ageless and universal. Thank you for letting us in.

    Congratulations to the entire family, the love you all have for each other is tremendous. I also saw your pictures on Twitter; has Ethan surpassed Andrew in the height department? You have a beautiful family.

    LOVE! I burst into tears at that photo of your husband. Did you have the presence of mind to snap that? God, what an amazing photo. I think the hug I got from my son when I first saw him at Family Day was the best hug I’ll ever get in my life.
