It's a powerful theme to many of us, I think. I didn't marry young. We began trying to have a child the next year, even though I was immersed in graduate school, because we knew my time was short. I didn't conceive and we despaired of it, figuring I was just too old. We adjusted, and stopped fretting over it.

Funny. Thirty-seven seemed so old to me then. Now I can see I was still quite young, although not in terms of fertility.

I always feel as though we just *chanced* to get her, as if she showed up on our doorstep in a basket with a note like Paddington Bear. I guess it's still hard for me to latch on to the fact that I actually got to have a child, except for the fact of her. You never know how things will turn out.

I love Frolijah's expression in this sequence. Just look at that boy's eyes. They tell you everything.

Yes, they do. But I see it far more clearly in these still frames than when the film is rolling.
