    I used to be involved in some adoptions, as a lawyer, and many of us who did that work felt that there was something magical (and definitely non-random) in how a particular baby and a particular family found each other.

    Blessings on all three of you, and may the sleep-deprivation fog envelope you in love and peace. (It too is part of the bonding experience.)

    •  It sure seems true. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm not a spiritual person but somehow - in some way I'll never comprehend - this baby chose us.  

      When we entered the room to meet her she was crying.  Ten minutes later she was fast asleep in my wife's arms....as her new parents quickly took over the crying role.

      I know all too well that it won't always be this easy.  But right now, in this moment, our world is whole.
