Hope is what we cling on to, as parents. Guilt is what we trip over.

Between these two, lies the fear.

We hope we're going to be okay, fear we won't, and feel guilty as sin when some things inevitably go wrong.

Of course, nobody warns us about it before we become parents.

I truly hope he will eventually stop blaming himself, though I fear he won't.
