Magic & Mystery

Magic, mystery and someone else’s master plan have brought you here.

You perch daintily in my lap, delicate as a flower. I will not hurt you.

You’ve traveled a long way. You are tired. I will take care of you.

Baby Girl Margolin, 5/23/11

The “big” ultrasound. Week 17-18.

You are here. I feel you inside. You are not leaving me. I won’t be scared anymore.

You are my baby girl.  You’re real. I finally feel like you’re mine.

Please remember, sweet one: I am not perfect. Just doing the best that I can.

I am taking it one hour at a time some days.

But you are the bright spot. You are a miracle,  my little magical red bean.
