“I don’t remember anything, back then, ya know, they would just knock you out and later they would bring the baby all washed and combed. They taped a bow onto your head. You were perfect, beautiful. The doctor said, if he was going to have a baby, he would want one just like you. They didn’t let me see you for a long time. Your father saw you, so you were ok, but it wasn’t until night that they let me see you. Ya know, Holly, hospitals were different, they had a lot of rules back then.
So when they finally brought you over, this big black nurse handed you to me and said ‘she gonna be bad.’”
