There is no shortage of new children arriving into the world every day. According to the BabyCenter a little over 4 million are born each year in the US alone, which comes to about 11,000 each day. Vizwiz tells me that her birthday ranks 337 out of the 366 possible birthdays. Christmas ranks 365 and February 29, leap year day, ranks 366.
Yet each birth is an amazing event. Connecting us to our pasts and our futures and stirring mystical bonds and giddy expectations that the world can be a better place. What an honor and treat to hold this precious child.
