|"Finally the incredible moment came when the doctor told me I could reach down and feel
my son’s head. I reached and could see his head in a mirror positioned there. Oh, he
was so soft and sweet and grey, a wonderful contrast to my near-bursting, hot, red bottom. All I could say was, "Oh baby, …oh, oh, baby," over and over. I couldn’t think of
anything more specific to express the intense joy of meeting at least a little part of my son." ~ excerpt from The Birth Story of Aleksandr Gene|
