You realize how vulnerable you now are. You have just created something you will protect more than yourself.
Despite the worries, our firstborn could not have been more adored. As the first grandchild on my side of the family, we were “over the moon” with this youngster. He was born one year after my twenty-three-year-old brother died unexpectedly. This fresh, new life was a soothing balm to my grieving parents.
