Lily, sweet Lily
Mark and I had a great time in San Diego with my Lily last week. We went to the zoo one day and the wild animal park the next. She is so precious and funny. She makes great faces and can already flare her nostrils fast enough to give me (the champ) a run for my money!
When I look at her I think of all of the things that may be barriers to her happiness. The fake image of beauty we hold in such esteem. The idea that suffering is necessary in relationships. I worry that my son, her father, will get married and have babies with another woman. Of course I want him to be happy but I also want the world for Lily and I know what it's like to have your position usurped by a new and improved family. It's hurtful and can affect the rest of your life. I hope that somehow all of these obstacles can be overcome and that she can find the happiness that everyone deserves but so few seem to attain.
Okay. Pictures. Here is my angel.
