From the moment they arrive, from the first glace at your new born baby they consume every fiber of your being. At that very moment your dreams have become reality. You start to see their destiny unfold before your eyes as you begin to dream of who they are and what they will become. They are the most precious, the most beautiful, the more pure thing you have ever encountered. Your heart is so full of love that there are no words to explain. Your eyes gaze at them endlessly. Your lips kiss the new born skin with tenderness. You wrap them in your loving embrace totally and completely enamored with them.
You leave the hospital heart filled with expectation, excitement, and joy. All goes well for days, weeks and months and then “suddenly”. Suddenly something is off, but you don’t know what. There is a distance that is in their eyes, that once held tight to the gaze of their mama. What’s happening? Is my baby ok? In your core of your being your mama radar knows something has gone wrong. Something is there that was not there before. It is so slight and you can’t really put your finger on it.
Weeks and months pass and the distance grows greater. The ability of the precious little one you love more than anything starts to have trouble dealing with daily life. Things begin to spin and spin, faster and faster until all of life seems out of control. Frustration with in your precious one mounts and surfaces in fits of rage. An hour, then two, then three.
