Aunt Mama Ellen and the Twins

imageMy friend Ellen planned to adopt her sister’s newborn due about the same time as her own.  She was her sister’s coach and put the newborn baby girl to her own breast at its birth, taking it home with her the next day.  Her sister, the birth mother went back to college, missing only one day of class. Seven days later Aunt/Mama Ellen was sitting in the obstetrician’s office, hugely pregnant, nursing her newborn babygirl amidst a crew of confused pregnant women in the waiting room.  The next day, she gave birth to her own baby girl.  The girls considered themselves twins, despite being cousins.  Both called the mother’s sister, aunt, and Elle, Mama.  It was a happy solution to a challenging situation.
