"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." - Elizabeth Stone
I have decided that I really like this painting. It's one of my favorites. Mostly because when I look at it I can remember so clearly what it felt like to hold my brand new baby, how he smelled like everything sweet and hopeful, how he gripped my finger with such force that I was sure he'd never let go.
But what I remember most is how it felt like he had filled a hole in my heart that I'd never even known was there.
