    This is my son Oliver and I, a week after he was born and the first time i was able to hold him. Both of my children were born premature and spent a total of 23 days in the NICU between the two of them. When you are dreaming of being a mommy, you never dream of what will happen if your child is born premature and has to spend an unknown amount of time in the hospital. You also never wonder why you are the one who has to have a child in a hospital yet the mommy in the room next to you has her newborn in her room and gets to leave after a few days. I found this little story from Erma Bombeck about how mom's of premature babies are selected. I like to think it is true. Most women become mothers by accident, some by choice, a few by social pressures and a couple by habit. This year thousands of mothers will give birth to a premature baby. Did you ever wonder how mothers of preemies are chosen? Somehow, I visualize God hovering over Earth selecting His instruments for propagation with great care and deliberation. As He observes, He instructs His angels to make notes in a giant ledger. “Armstrong, Beth, son. Patron saint, Matthew. “Forest, Majorie, daughter. Patron saint, Ceceila. “Rutledge, Carrie, twins. Patron saint… give her Gerard. He’s used to profanity. Finally, He passes a name to an angel and smiles, “Give her a premature baby.” The angel is curious. “Why this one, God? She’s so happy.” “Exactly,” smiles God. “Could I give a premature baby a mother who does not know laughter? That would be cruel.” “But does she have patience?” asks the angel. “I don’t want her to have too much patience, or she will drown in a sea of self-pity and despair. Once the shock and resentment wear off, she’ll handle it.” “I watched her today. She has that sense of self and independence that are so rare and so necessary in a mother. You see, the child I’m going to give her has his own world. She has to make it live in her world and that’s not going to be easy.” “But, Lord, I don’t think she even believes in you.” God smiles, “No matter, I can fix that. This one is perfect. She has just enough selfishness.” The angel gasps, “Selfishness? Is that a virtue?” God nods. “If she can’t separate herself from the child occasionally, she’ll never survive. Yes, here is a woman whom I will bless with a child who comes in a less than perfect way. She doesn’t realize it yet, but she is to be envied.” “She will never take for granted a spoken word. She will never consider a step ordinary. When her child says ‘Mommy’ for the first time, she will be witness to a miracle and know it. When she describes a tree or a sunset to her blind child, she will see it as few people ever see my creations.” “I will permit her to see clearly the things I see - ignorance, cruelty, prejudice - and allow her to rise above them. She will never be alone. I will be at her side every minute of every day of her life because she is doing my work as surely as she is here by my side.” “And what about her patron saint?” asks the angel, the pen poised in mid-air. God smiles. ”A mirror will suffice.” -Adapted from Erma Bombeck Motherhood: The Second Oldest Profession
