What do I see in these eyes?

Peace. Knowing that the tiny wonder she has been carrying is alive.

What do I see in these eyes?

Joy. As a mother gazes at a father who captures one of her proudest moments, birthing her second child into the world

What do I see in these eyes?

Acceptance. Not knowing when her brand new baby will die, but trusting they will do their best for her while she is with them.

What do I see in these eyes?

Gratitude. For the opportunity to stare into this child’s eyes for a little while, and shower her with the love she deserves.

What do I see in these eyes?

Growth. A new, grittier woman will emerge out of the heart crushing pain. She already has.
