Bredon's Story - My Season of Advent

Saturday, January 2, 2010

The new year has come, but it is the old that still draws my attention, for it seems time has slowed, stopped for me in the new blue eyes of a baby, in the uncertain brown eyes of a toddler too suddenly grown. I scrabble about through memories and dreams - old and new - sorting what is, what has been, what is coming to be.

The several posts listed below are my birth story, sorted as I can sort it for now for sharing, for remembrance. I have linked in a number of older, related posts for my reference, so I don't end up rewriting things I have already said here. You don't have to read them all, but they're here if you'd like a little more back-story.

I hope you enjoy
