I lay with her small body curled in front of mine, her head sharing my pillow, her curly hair in my face. I have my hand on her chest and I can feel her steady breaths. She has fallen back to sleep. I breath in her scent and wonder, not for the first time, how someone as flawed and damaged as me managed to create such a perfect little being.
She is the most amazing thing I have ever done.... and I wasn't even trying. I too fall back to sleep, grateful for the greater plan... the one I didn't plan for at all.
