Parent and Child
In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"The search for his name took almost the entire pregnancy. My husband Joe and I had discussed, thought over, and imagined over a dozen names for the little one that was to make us a family of three. One website simply described “Massimo” as an Italian name that derived from the Latin name “Maximus” and that translated to “Max” in English. Another website stated that “Massimo” meant “remarkable”. When Massimo was finally born, we grew to appreciate (and still do every day) how fitting his name and its meaning is for him. Of course, our pride and slight bias as Massimo’s parents may lead us to find amazement in almost everything he has done in the nine months of his life, but he has also been a driving force in many aspects of each of our personal and professional lives."
