“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.”
~ Khalil Gibran
I love children and have three of my own. I completely agree with the above quote with all of my heart. That being said, I have found it important to celebrate my children during the short time that I will have with them.
I found a couple of videos that do just that. One celebrates a longed for child as it develops inside of his mother and the other celebrates a child that’s already arrived.
This video of a baby bump turned baby left a bump in my throat—what a gorgeous and inspired way to celebrate the miracle of a life that is being created.
If you loved that, you may also appreciate this moving video that documents a daughter’s blossoming by her father with weekly videos. He has captured her in video from birth though the age of 14 thus far.
