A Dewdrop Comes into Our Lives


When you came into the world, like your sister, you did not delay in coming. It was a joy to be there when you arrived, for both myself and your sister, "B."

While B and I stood at the head of the bed, anticipating your arrival, I wondered if B would mind being there. The nurses said it would be okay, as long as I was okay with it. B remarked, while you were just arriving, "Mommy owey?" "Yes, mommy owey," I replied.

Oh, we must not forget, your grandmother, M, was there, too. Shortly after you arrived. All of us were so happy to announce your new name, which we kept a secret (even B knew, but didn't tell anyone).

After I cut the umbilical cord, took some pictures and dressed you, that is when you got the name dewdrop. You seemed so tiny and cute, the name came naturally out of my mouth... "She's like a little dewdrop."

You are certainly an added blessing to my life, as well as our family's.

I thank God for you as our newest gift.

Much love,
