This is the first photograph I saw of Trey.  It didn't make much sense to me.  I couldn't see him.  Just a profile of his little head.  For two months I avoided the photograph.  I couldn't get attached to it if it wasn't our baby.  It was scanned and sitting on my desktop as "Trey's Ultrasound".  I didn't want anything to do with it.  If I started at it too much, I would want it too much.  And if I wanted it too much, I wouldn't get very far if this was not our baby.  Looking back, I treasure that photograph.  It was the first one I laid eyes on of his face.  The first time I saw him.  I will treasure that day and that photograph for all my life.
