When my baby was born nine years ago, I wasn't quite ready. No one is ready for change whether good or bad. In addition to a difficult birth, my beautiful baby was difficult, too. She didn't sleep, she cried endlessly, she had trouble nursing. But now, nearly a decade later, I am the proud mother of this wonderful little person. A person with her own sense of humor, mannerisms, and frustrations. And now this beautiful baby is featured along with an excerpt of my essay, The Beginning of the World, on Creative Nonfiction's website.
