Read an Excerpt


Miracle of Life

From the moment our baby is born, we stare, not quite believing the miracle that has issued forth from our bodies. Our minds still can't quite fathom the mystery of the birth experience.

When asleep, we peek in her room and again, we stare, studying her face for the answer to our question: "Is she real?" Enchanted, we continue to gaze at her, amazed that she has come into our lives.

Our curiosity never completely goes away. Over the years, there are certain moments when we find ourselves simply gazing at our child and once more ask: "Did this person really come from inside of me?"

The miraculous qualities of birth never leave me. Maybe that's what makes it so special.
