I remember the day my son was born, not even being married to a pediatrician helped my cluelessness . He had difficulty breathing, he was delivered weeks earlier than he should have been, he needed to be transferred to a level 1 hospital and still, all I said, was ,”isn’t he cute”?

Naturally, I’m going to write my thoughts about the book in this article; otherwise, I would have just been wasting words with the other sentences in the article.
