Love At First Sight:
When Matt and I laid eyes on our daughter for the first time it was surreal. In the adoption process while you wait for your baby, thoughts are born. Thoughts like: What if I do not love my child right away. This was my fear. I wanted to be the best Mom I could be and I wanted our daughter to know love from the very second she took a breath on this earth. Adoption Assistance Agency put this fear to rest for me before Juli was born. They told us it was natural for parents to grow to love their child. Love grows in the very act of nurturing them and seeing to their needs. It happens over time. I do not know how but I loved Juli at first sight.
