We watch a "night-time video" each evening as part of our going-to-bed routine. Tonight's pick, "Baby Bear Gets a Little Sister" or something to that effect (I'm too lazy to walk into my room to check out the real title -- it's been a long day). Baby Bear's sister is born to the family, not adopted, BTW.
During the show, Maya is snuggling up next to me and says, "When you met me you were sooooo happy!" "Yes, I was," I reply, "I was soooooo happy I cried!" (she thinks it's funny that grownups cry when they're happy). Maya continues, "I was brand new. . . . Well, I was brand new to you, but not to the world because I'd been there before." Yes, indeed!
Grieving the Unknown.
