When I was released from the hospital after Marcus was born, I walked out those double doors without him. Anyone who has done this, left the hospital without their baby in their arms knows this is a painful thing to do.
Nothing about it feels right. Fortunately I knew my baby would be coming home, I had to be patient.
Friends took me to my favorite Chinese restaurant for comfort food. I don’t remember the food or the conversation, what I remember is the fortune cookie ->
“The heart is wiser than the intellect.”
Normally I get annoyed by fortune cookies that are not fortunes, but I already knew this one was, in fact, a fortune after all.
