But resolutely forward we went. The magic day of April 5, 2007, arrived and there we were in the delivery room at Wellington Regional Medical Center in Wellington, Florida, for Christy's third birth--not to mention her third C-section.
Sweet little Jordan, all comfy and warm and snug where he was. And then the adventure began, in Jordan's words, through a child's eyes.
In darkness warm my quickened heart
Beats time on time in sudden start.
No place to see, nor inch that's dry,
Nor thoughts of sun, of trees or sky
Invade my mind's rampart.
Yet all sweet dreams the world does thwart.
I follow my Creator's chart,
And so from here I bid goodbye
To darkness warm.
With grasp and pull of rigor smart
Of ache brought on like spear or dart
One takes me out, and then I lie
On surface cold without a cry
To spite the chill as I depart
From darkness warm.
