It wasn’t the last time I’d see Sue. She had emergency brain surgery in order to relieve the fluid building around her brain. The surgery went well. It took several months, but she fully recovered. In the meantime, the ladies at the church and I helped take care of Baby S.
About a month later, I got flowers thanking me for all of the help I gave during the time of Sue’s recovery, they were signed from Baby S. All of this baby experience, put T. in the mood to try for one of our own.
A little less than a year later, I was pregnant. Sue and J. threw a huge baby shower, and my parents planned on staying at Steve and Sue’s house while I delivered, as I chose a home delivery.
Then it happened.
A tiny boy
entered the world
entered my world.
Gave me a new title
a new job
I was crazy for him.
He was ours.
I wasn’t feeling quite grown up enough.
For such responsibility.
But He was ours none the less.
I prayed Leah’s prayer,
and asked her question.
Maybe now that I had done this incredible thing,
this amazing feat
of bringing a life into the world.
Maybe I would be loved,
Surely now, I would be looked upon with favor,
Surely now, I would be good enough.
