What Every Parent Needs To Know.
The excitement is overwhelming for a young couple, about to have a baby.
That moment, months before the baby arrives, looking at that positive pregnancy test or filling out those initial papers for adoption; the couple is filled with elattion. They realise that they are no longer just husband and wife; they are now father and mother.
They haven’t seen this child, they don’t know who this little person will be. And yet, they’ve already fallen in love with that tiny baby. It’s overwhelming…in a good way!
A few years down the road, and maybe the addition of a brother or sister, or a couple of them; and that word ‘overwhelming‘ takes on a whole new meaning!
