Everyone is excited now and sending us gifts.
You expect things like toys, books, and clothes.
OR maybe something useful like a bag to lug all of the junk around.
Because it is clear that we already have 3 large bags for this child. How can something
the size of a small football need her own landing force and Army so that she can travel.
We don't need to hire a nanny as much as a mover - just to pick her up and bring her home.
I'm thinking - how much does she need?
She doesn't even sit up for the longest time.
All she does is lay down on her back and wait for everything to come to her.
The life of a baby and a surrogate sure seem to have a lot in common.
Or at least my version of what a surrogate should be doing.
But, in my mind surrogates are fragile, like a china doll and break easy.
I have been told that I am wrong.
The most disturbing thing is that our number one gift has not been clean, nice, cute, little clothes.
But, Barf towels and Diapers.....
It's a good thing that this child has a mother.
