“The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.”
My sister-in-law gave birth last August. It was premature birth, we didn’t expect the baby to come so early. He has to stay at the Kangaroo care while sis-in-law would visit him to feed him and to spend time with him. Three days ago he is finally taken home. The little bundle of joy proved to me the meaning of love at first sight. I’ve only seen photos, I’ve only watched videos but my heart melts every single time.
It’s the same feeling but perhaps more intense then when I first lay sight of my newborn kids. They resemble each other in a way but they have different qualities too, I can stress that now that they’ve grown. This makes my conviction about God’s awesome power stronger. That he did not create two people alike, sure there are twins, triplets or so but they can never be exactly the same…there’ll always be a difference. Identity. Despite the differences, we’d love each of them equally. It is not an easy task. Patience dries up at the middle of the day and I personally would get angry at them. At the end of the day,what matters is that feeling that they’re cherished despite the anger you’ve shown that day. A tight hug, a kiss and an “I Love You” will go a long way.
