a new Ai

I like good news, don’t you? Ai was born on Wednesday. Ai…love…starting life by beating the odds. That’s good news for Zhang Xiaoyan who was trapped for 50 hours under 18 feet of rubble in last month’s earthquake, a mother (to-be ast the time) who prayed not for her own life but for her baby’s survival. Obviously someone heard her prayers; rescue workers found her and her mother in Dujiangyan two days after the May 12th earthquake struck.  On Wednesday (June 18th) she held that previous life in her arms and named her Ai, or love, in honor of the rescue workers and strangers who have been so kind to her. What an awesome story.
