In Wonder

I'm not one of those people who gets gushy over babies.  In general they do absolutely nothing for me.  But I am overjoyed, delighted, and just plain thrilled about the newest member of my family- my beautiful little niece Aisling.  

How is it possible to love a new person so much when I'd never even met her before?  To feel an emotional pull at the first sight of a photograph, the first sound of her name?  And then to feel such surprising wonder and immediate connection when first presented in person?  Over the last three days I have amazed myself at how fiercely and protectively I love her.  I can't imagine my world now without her in it.
