Mother Nature

I'm always in awe when I see the anomalies that Mother Nature provides the world. Just the mere fact that I'm sitting here typing a blog is a miracle in itself considering that had my parents been bumpin' uglies and concieved a child just a month before me, I would literally be someone else. This is Syafitri, the newest addition to a family in Indonesia and as you can see, she's quite special-and not in a little yellow bus kind of way. According to global statistics, this baby has a 5-10% chance of surviving, but according to doctors, she is doing very well but has a few complications (obviously). I always wonder why it is that Nature decides to drop a small memo every now and then to remind us that life is special, regardless of how obscure or unusual it may be.
