I just wanted to hear your cry and for everyone to tell me that you were OK. That you had 10 beautiful fingers, and 10 beautiful toes. All I wanted was to hold you and look deeply into your eyes and for you to know that I was your mum. Yours, forever and ever. When you cry, I cry. When you’re happy, I am the happiest. You are my first born, my true love. My first little monkey – my Christos.
For the first time, I was a mum. You gave me that right, that purpose and filled my heart with love. With that love, came many tears. Some happy, some sad, some frustrating and helpless.
But all will be well.
All will be well, as long as we have each other.
