Then I saw the inner parts of the natural body coming in. I saw the flesh coming on and I saw the skin come onto the body. A beautiful head of hair adorned the top of the head. The child rose to her feet. She looked at me and I looked at her, and for a quarter of a minute we just looked at each other smiling.
