I

t is the week of Sept. 11,
and much of the world is
wrapped in a dark mem-
ory of grief.
Televisions, newspapers,
magazines and radios all bring
the same solemn news of the
attacks, the dead, the fear that
continues to this day. It is
enough to steal hope away
from anyone.
But inside one West
Bloomfield home, a tiny baby
— in the world less than a
handful of days — sleeps in

peace and safety in her father's
arms. She is Shira Chaya and,
like her name, she is a song of
life.
Shira Chaya (Chaya was for
two aunts, the Shira was "just
because we liked it" the new
mom says) is about to celebrate
her first Rosh Hashanah. She is
the first in many ways in her
family: the couple's first child,
both their parents' first grand-
child, and the first great-grand-
child for both maternal and
paternal great-grandparents as
well.
Kim and Bryan Schon, now
both 23, met when they were

students at the University of
Michigan in Ann Arbor. He
was studying history. She was
pre-law. A friend introduced
them, and soon afterward they
began dating.
They went out for two years
before they married and settled
in West Bloomfield, where
Bryan took a job as a financial
consultant for UBS Financial
Services.
They knew — right away —
that they wanted children —
right away. The good news
came around midnight. Kim
had a home pregnancy test. She
tried it. It was positive.
