“No, I would not give you false hope
On this strange and mournful day
But the mother and child reunion
Is only a motion away”
“Mother and Child Reunion” – Paul Simon
The young woman was able to see her son yesterday. She was finally cleared for COVID, and she went with her fiancé to St. Joseph Hospital to visit little Asher. Asher is in the NICU at the hospital. He’s “out of the box”. He no longer needs to be in the incubator. The young woman was able to hold her boy, for the first time since she gave birth to him.
Asher is two weeks old, and tiny. He will be in the the hospital for probably another five weeks. Then, at last, he will to come to our house. It will be his first home.
I could write more, but words are too clumsy. Instead, I am posting two photos.
The pictures say more than I ever could.
