Today Gaia turns ten. Ten ! Can you believe it's already ten years.
I was only 24, and quite scared of all was happening. At this time i was already in hospital ( I was admitted early in the morning ) but Gaia only arrived at 7:30 pm. Labour lasted 14 hours. When she was put on my chest i couldn't believe this pretty new human being came from me. I asked permission to touch her ! She seemed so precious and fragile I was almost afraid. My wonderful Ob Giorgio had a good laugh and told me 'Of course you can touch her, she is YOUR DOUGHTER'
A child was born.
A mother was born.
We share the very same birthday.
As i share a birthday with each one of my children
Happy birthday my beloved child.
