In the age of modern science, we can explain so much of the world around us. Having debunked most of the myths, we have removed much of the mystery of life. When I became pregnant, I knew about the zygote, blastocyst, involution and entire developmental process. While amazing, the development of a fetus is no longer a great mystery. Science can explain every stage in the development of a baby, and you can read all about it on the World Wide Web.
Despite all of the advances in Science, we still can’t explain what happens when the nurse places your baby in your arms for the first time. No matter how much you understand about the process, it still feels like a miracle! There is no explanation for the love and joy that you feel in that moment. Thankfully there are still a few mysteries left! Please take a moment and share how you felt the first time you held your babies.
