Before my first driving lesson, I believed I could drive. I drove in the rough streets of Newark and on scary highways, holding the steering wheel with a single hand. It was second nature.
On February 12th at 11:38am, my superwoman and beautiful wife, Ariel delivered our baby girl, Amali. Amali means "hope" and is of Swahili origin.
Like driving, I believed I was ready for my new role as father.
Growing up in an extended family home in Ghana, I observed the care of many newborns. Caring for Amali comes naturally.
I have accepted this baton with confidence. My arms are wide open, ready to embrace all of the joy, happiness, challenges and most importantly, the responsibility to raise Amali with an overflow of love.
This is my Weku! Weku means family and is of my native language, Gã from Ghana.
