It seems to me that not being satisfied with what HaShem has given
you, whether a boy or a girl, flies in the face of accepting the
will of HaShem and being thankful for his "gift."

baby healthy?" "Is the mother fine?" To me this is all that should count.
This lesson was really brought home to me when my youngest grandson
was born in March 2011. Shortly after he was born it was discovered
that his esophagus was not connected to his stomach. If you
