His name was Joshua Adam Parker and he weighed eight pounds, six ounces, a perfectly formed baby. Jennifer knew that babies were supposed to be ugly at birth, wrinkled and red and resembling little apes. Not Joshua Adam. He was beautiful. The nurses at the hospital kept telling Jennifer what a handsome boy he was, and Jennifer could not hear it often enough. The resemblance to Adam was striking. Joshua Adam had his father’s gray-blue eyes and beautifully shaped head. When Jennifer looked at him, she was looking at Adam.
Jennifer had wondered how she would feel about her baby. Babies were surely boring to be around. They messed their diapers, and demanded to be fed constantly; they cried and slept and cried again. There was no communication with them.
