Beloved Son, I Am Going to Be Your Father !! : Letters of an ''expecting father'' to his unborn son
There are many good "diaries" written by pregnant women for pregnantwomen, but a dairy written by an "expecting father" is not common. Mostmen hide their feelings under the archetype of "a strong, tough guy". Theyforbid themselves from expressing them, even when the arrival of his fi rstson brings forth a wave of new and profound emotions.This small book has that merit. The author has allowed himself to writefreely, without shame the feelings that invaded his heart and mind whilehis wife shared with him the impressions, emotions and experiences of thecoming of their fi rst son, a few years back. He did this by writing letters tohis unborn son telling him how he, as a father-to-be, was experiencing hiswife's pregnancy. In the process it became his experience of an "expectingfather".There are many men, too many, who have not had the chance to confess tothemselves nor to others what they have felt while their wives were pregnant.Probably because they did not have a chance to refl ect consciously aboutsuch new emotions, nor did they have a frame of reference of another manexperiencing those feelings and expressing them. This is the reason whythis book may be helpful. It offers to those "expecting fathers" a rich frameof reference, which they can use to clarify their feelings. They will fi nd outhow common these emotions can be when they read in this diary howanother man had similar responses.
