Photos from babiesA new baby enters the world, your family, your life–and your life changes. This from a woman who has never been a biological mother, but has mothered more babies and children than she ever dreamed.

A baby shifts your perspective, keeps you awake, makes you laugh, opens your heart. Hug them, feed them, play with them, babysit for others. Enjoy this most precious “resource.” Most people would agree that you don’t have to be a mother to love a baby. I’ve loved some wondrous babies, and… they have loved me back. You can’t beat that.
