It is still a mystery to me that such a perfect child could have been conceived, nurtured, and torn from my own body. How can the spark of irresistible love so burn that a new being is created where there was none?
February 2nd I had the great privilege of giving birth to a daughter. At 6 lbs. 7 oz. she remained healthy throughout the labor and regained her birth weight within five days. She enchants us with her small mannerisms, her perfect storms of emotion, and the peace which rules her countenance.
Dear E., welcome to the world!
