I always heard that the love you have for your child is something that cannot be described, and can't be compared to any other type of love. I finally get it. This little human being whom I barely know, when I stare into her eyes and she stares back at mine, there is this instant connection. And the feeling that comes over me when I feel that connection, that bond, is overwhelming, all consuming. And even though I saw her as she entered this world and came out of me, I can hardly believe that this little girl was the one inside of me for 10 months.
And suddenly it hits me, as we take each other in, that I feel like I might burst because this love can't possibly fit inside me.
