Sample text

There was no camera for pictures, no perfect little outfit to mark the arrival with booties that didn’t stay on and knitted caps that looked better in gift wrapping than on a baby’s head. All that mattered was that we were going home. On the drive back, I couldn’t help but notice the difference between going home with a new baby and going home with a new baby after grappling with the real possibility that we might not have been able to. The two experiences were so close together that in the silence between us, as we drove away from the hospital, it was hard to miss a joy that was deeper this time around.

Casey is three and four months. We just celebrated the fact yesterday. At this age, you celebrate the months. Owen is a stumbling drunk one-year-old.

We have a basket of hand-medown scarves, mittens, hats, and boots that have been once worn by no less than six different families.

I nodded civily but felt more like jumping her shoulders and ripping her hair out with my teeth. I’d had enough. I might have felt differently if Casey seemed sick, but he didn’t seem sick.
