Both the poem and the picture are so beautiful. A newborn lovingly embracing his mother!.... I was born through a C-section, so I feel a connection to this good news story. You did a great job with the contest theme. Good luck to you, Andrea!.... Thank you so much for your nice comments. I do appreciate them!

Says something in the Bible about honoring your parents - I know people who don't even talk to their parents. I also know that a couple of my nephews - whom I love - were born by C- Section. Fascinating write. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
