Becoming a parent opens up new landscapes of emotion within us: new hopes, fears, delights, and sorrows. It’s a combination of raw emotions that leave you feeling more vulnerable than you could have ever imagined - like walking around with your heart outside of your body. There is no magic moment when you stop worrying, and sometimes, even when we do everything right, the unthinkable could still happen. The fragility and unpredictability of life underscore how precious each life is.
