Five years ago tonight I went into the hospital... and that's all I'm going to say on the matter. Women and their childbirth stories right?
This was her song from me. Even as I waited for her, felt her growing and moving inside me, rocking in the corner of her empty nursery trying to imagine what it would be like.
Five days later I left the hospital with her in my arms, feeling like I had been entrusted with the most fragile, delicate, important living thing, ever to appear on the face of the earth. Terrifying.
