“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

"My Beautiful Girls, I'm writing this letter from the hospital, a few hours before you're expected to come into the world. And all I can feel is a cocktail of excitement mixed with fear..."

Twelve hours after sealing this letter, my world was turned upside down. My twin girls entered the world, and I rediscovered who I am and who I want to be.

Before Shai and Dor were born, everyone told me that my life was about to change, that everything I thought I knew about myself would come under question. I listened and nodded politely, but deep down I didn't believe it.

Well, two six-pound girls are proving me wrong.

Every time I pick them up and hear them giggle I know that my priorities have changed. I realize that my purpose in life is no longer to achieve wealth, power, or influence, but rather to be the best role model and father I can be for my girls.

As I look into their tiny eyes I know what I want to do with the rest of my life—to love my daughters with all my heart and to make them proud of their father.
