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.
