“Does it sound shallow if I say we should choose the cutest one?”
“Ken and I were hunkered over his computer screen, squinting at grainy pictures of three baby boys who had recently arrived at Casa Antigua, the agency in Guatemala we were using for our adoption. We had been waiting for this email for weeks, waiting for a baby boy to find his way to us on the back of misfortune.
