I thought I knew the meaning of love until my first grandchild was born. Grandmothers told me it would be indescribable and even more amazing than having my own children and not until I held my grandson have I felt a joy this intense.

When I call for connection and no one comes it is terrifying.

I was born in a time when picking up babies and soothing them was considered “spoiling the child”.  With a bad case of colic I spent a lot of time crying, I am told, and no one coming.
