The birth of a child is a precious thing. It is surrounded by emotions such as joy, pride, fulfillment and dreams coming true. A whirlwind of activities take place: birth announcements, baby showers, nursery decorations; the list is almost endless. I remember, in detail, the birth of my two daughters. Never had I experienced such overwhelming joy. I instantly believed in love at first sight! I recall my wife Sharron calling each by name as soon as they were born.
