It just takes seeing one heart-warming or heart-breaking moment to put it all in perspective. Boy, are Mama’s kids lucky. Not just mine, but most of the kids that live in the United States with modern medicine, food to eat, clean water to drink, warm beds to sleep in and most of all parents that love them and care for them. Imagine not having one of those or having any of them…Why worry about what designer diaper bag will look the best on your shoulder when some little baby half-way across the world is lucky to be alive?
Like Mama said, just one moment to put it all in perspective — like Babies. The new documentary Babies by Thomas Balmes follows four infants from birth to one year of age in four different parts of the world — Mongolia, San Francisco, Namibia and Toyko.
