Moving story of a post nuclear apocalypse where normal child births are very rare; nearly all children born are grossly deformed. Story tracks a woman's pregnancy, birth of a daughter, & first few years (or months?) of the daughter. Mother so badly wants her child to be normal that she hasn't even noticed that her daughter lacks all limbs - even several years after birth!!
- Wilmar H Shiras' "In Hiding": Another story that features a very fearful maternal grandmother. Her daughter & son-in-law died in the after effects of nuclear accident, & their surviving baby is might be a mutant.
