You are on your way, little one. I already love you, and I can assure -more immediately and certainly than I have ever done before- that I will love you every new day.

There is so much love awaking around you, growing along your milimetric size, awaiting for your cheeks, getting ready to assist you throughout your life…

You were a surprise, you know? Some quote the will of God, I quote irresponsibility; I wish your mom and dad were more aware, mature, healthy, and independent, in order to receive you… But they are good people, and they love you so much! They are so happy. I have witnessed their love for each other more strongly now, and wherever life leads them, one thing will remain unchanged: they will both love you more than anything and anyone else in the world, forever.

From your dad’s side, I can only tell you that everyone in the family is full of joy with the news of your coming.

From your mom’s side, people are happy too, and I can tell you that you are coming to a peculiar family; each one of us is a little strange in different ways. That’s how it is, little one. You’ll have to see the love in your grandpa’s serious face, in your grandma’s worrying eyes, in your mom’s sometimes too loud voice, in your aunt’s quiet presence. I tell you what… I have the suspicion that you will come to instill knowledge in us, and to release our hugs.

I’ll teach you so much… I’ll teach you to read, even in english. Will you like to read? Will you? If not, don’t worry, it won’t all be so boring with me… I’ll show you the beauty of nature, we will play on the ground, I’ll sing for you, we will burst soap bubbles, and I’ll even let you eat dirt and grass outside… how’s that?

Little one, a miracle is what you are.

Your aunt.
