Welcoming a Little One

One day, my teacher posed the class with this question,"What would you do, should an alien race come to this world, to say that we welcome them with peace?". We were 14 or 15 years old, and at that age, we thought it was cooler to have a space fight a la Star Wars.

He continued on, "We should send a couple with their baby as our ambassadors, because baby is a symbol of love", and as an easily impressed kids, we were looking at him with awe. It was SO deep, (that Adele might roll in it).

Today, I know that it's not necessarily true, some babies arrived due to circumstances, some get the wrong gender, and risked getting hated (or terminated) by their own parents. It might make someone a bit cynical, especially in a world where over-population is a major concern.

But, here we are, finding some of our friends, great people who has been waiting for a little one all their life. We are so happy to know, that these babies will come into a loving family, even though the parents' eyes is tinged with blood colour due to all the loss of sleep. In this circumstances, a celebratory welcoming, is indeed fitting. We hope you, little one, and your parents, really live, laugh, and more importantly, love.
