It can’t be scientifically proved, but I do believe that weekend was the beginning of the long conception that eventually brought Leo and me together. I probably would have found my way to single motherhood without my ex-husband, but I’m glad I didn’t have to. Years earlier, he had been the first and only man ever to whisper to me in the night, “Want to make a baby?”

And in time, in the most mysterious way, we did.
