To that end, every Sunday I will post my own list for that week’s topic.

2. August 23, 1986 — at the end of a long, very exciting day, sitting in my quiet, dimly-lit hospital room with my 7-hour-old son, holding him and sharing with him my hopes and dreams for him

3. March 22, 1989 — watching from my hospital bed as my husband held my son, who held his 5-hours-old baby sister
