4 Months of waiting

3 Times applying

2 years of loving support from my wife

This just goes to show that patience, sometimes in the extreme, pays off. I remember, although she has probably forgotten, that when I applied to the University of Chicago the first time, Mom had a dream that I got in. Well, her prescience was just a little bit off in time, but I guess dreams do come true. I would say Chicago here we come, but … here we already are!

  1. We are so pleased for you! Your mother’s dreams for you started long before Chicago. It is so good to see them come true. Love you both oodles and caboodles.Mom
