About this item
The birth of a baby is both wondrous and miraculous-often described as the happiest day of a parent's life. Even so, any new parent experiences a certain degree of fear upon the arrival of a newborn. Mixed with the joy and anticipation of welcoming a new life into the world is the overwhelming feeling of being completely responsible for the nurturing and well-being of a brand-new human. "I wish my daughter had come with an instruction book," writes Gregory E. Lang, "a parent's manual of endless details describing all possible infant behaviors." Since no book existed, Lang, like millions of other parents, felt his way along and learned by trial and error. Why I Need You is the record of what he learned, the manual that didn't come with his daughter.
Why I Need You evokes the tender moments of child rearing and the emotion-filled memories that last a lifetime, reminding them from time to time why they were loved ? and why they were needed.
