all the gushing of love is completely appropriate and expected. but let me keep it real. this is hard work! this child will test your sanity on all levels, so keep returning to loving and supporting one another. get help, even if you have to pay for it, your relationship is the earth for this child's roots! model for this child how to work through the challenges that life will bring, with love and honesty and non violent communication. and open your arms to welcome all of it (cuz it never goes away, not even after 18 years)!!
Love all ways,
yoga mama (mother of many)
