When you were born you came quietly, and with eyes deep as an ocean you looked at me…. The birth of a baby brings forth poetry. As family, friends, and neighbors gather around to share in the joy of a new baby, they emerge changed. Their world is redefined as they take a moment to remember the past, imagine the future, and marvel at the tiny miracle before them. With tender poetry and evocative painting, Dianna Hutts Aston and E.B. Lewis capture the sense of reverence that will resonate with anyone who has gazed into the eyes of a newborn child.
