Fifty-five years ago today a baby was born.
Fifty-five years ago a baby boy was born and thrilled his parents whose first four children were girls. A son at last.
Fifty-five years ago today I knew nothing of it, safe and sheltered in my mother’s womb for sixty-one days longer.
Many babies were born on this day I have no doubt. But this baby boy has changed my life.
What a wonder. A miracle. A gift from the universe.
