New Life

I just heard from my sister that her latest great grandchild was born this AM.  The baby missed mother's day by 1 1/2 hours.  He has an older sister and his parents are so very proud of him.  My daughter-in-law is due next week with my 19th grandchild.  It is so exciting to think about a new life beginning.  It is such a miracle that a baby can begin so small and grow into a beautiful, functional, constantly moving individual that can take over your heart and your life. God blesses us with these little people who are a part of us.  Life happens so quickly but it seems to drag very slowly at other times.  A baby is a gift that keeps on giving.  It is a lifetime commitment to become a birth mother, adoptive mother or a step-mother.  Other mothers include foster mothers, neighbors or friends who are stand in mothers at times or fathers who are mother and father. Children need love, constancy, discipline, faith and to thrive. They are amazing as little sponges who soak up love and attention.  No matter what capabilities a baby is born with, he or she always has the ability to make a difference the lives of everyone around them. I thank God for babies!
