Watching her pregnancy develop was surreal to me. I had to learn to be a third-party to my grandchild, who was growing as important to me as my own children were.

To know that he was scared and hurting hurt me more than feeling sorry for myself did, and it was hard.
The process was long and scary as we waited for test result after test result. A missed flight could be a boon or a bane, depending on how you look at it. It could mean a potential accident avoided. Or it could mean a missed interview and a consequent missed opportunity.
