I am in love. I met Zach last night. He is two and a half and quite the charmer. He has such presence and knowing and watching his mind work is the most amazing thing. He is also adorable, and I mean adorable, so I am thrilled to be allowed such close entry into his life.
Watching him play so securely and serenely, I wonder about all the children who do not receive this kind of attention. If only all the children who were born were wanted and had parents with enough financial security and time to feed, clothe, play with, appreciate, and learn from them. Children are our greatest gift. We need to give them the best world we can.
