A Very Good Start

Evan called to ask me how to establish paternity for the baby-to-be. He and the mother do not plan to get married, and he wants to have legal rights. He's especially worried about being able to authorize medical care in an emergency.

Evan, who rarely thinks beyond this very moment, is trying to figure out how to handle issues that won't arise until the end of May. He also wants to add the baby to his health insurance and wants to handle the paperwork so it's all effective the moment she is born.

We've got a long, long way to go, but this is a good start. A very good start.

A great first step, you're right. And what is a journey, after all, but a series of steps.
