In this time of Advent, I play one of my favorite Christmas songs and think of all the babies that have changed everything in my life;
The foster babies
(Ciara, Cordelia, Devontae, Kiara, Alyah, Kuran, Brandon)
The hundreds of children I have held from daycare and babysitting
The babies that never made it earthside
I think of the babies of the future that will pass from my hands into their mother's as they take their first breath
I think of the babies that will someday be mine, the ones I will carry in my womb and in my heart
I think of that baby, born in a stable, wrapped in cloths, whose birth was attended by the angels.
I am reminded, that my God knows exactly what makes me tick, how to get my attention, how to teach me, how to remind me I am loved.
A baby changes everything...
