A small victory -- January 05, 2003

Yesterday Jackson suggested what he saw as a simple solution to our problems. He was admiring a little baby while he, David and I were out during some rare family time and he turned to us and said, "Maybe we should just buy another baby."

What do you say to something like that? We realized that we had to find a way to better include Jackson in Sam's life at the hospital. He has not been able to visit due to hospital policy. But, today, I was able to convince the doctor to "bend" the rules and now Jackson can visit Sam in his room at any time.

if i didn't know better

had i not crested each wave of labor to your glorious
had i not been there for your debut
i would have thought you were dropped from heaven
your body damaged in the fall
but your spirit whole — big, beautiful and pure

never imagining my love to be so complete and selfless
not expecting my fierce desire to make your little body able
and perfect
or my fear to change anything
lest my meddling somehow diminish your beauty

You have captivated me
my sweet, imperfect angel
