My baby,

Your loving, sweet face stares up at me as I write this. It’s been only a week since I’ve brought you home, but I cannot hold it in any longer. I must write this so that the memories are fresh in my mind and the thoughts are on paper. You will know eventually; I just cannot let it be now.

A strong and sturdy Marine with a passion like no other and a drive like I’ve never seen.

Your father, my baby, is Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
