One of the major blessings in my life happened when I got a call on a warm July day 2 years ago, from my pregnant sister. I had a rather large belly, getting ready to deliver a little child myself, not knowing that my August due date would be a September one instead. She told me, very excitedly, that she would be having a little girl too. We were both excited but we were so unsure about how this would actually play out.
It has been one of my greatest joys to see how my daughter and my niece interact. They hold hands, they ask for each other, my daughter will ask if we will see her almost any time we get into a car, they love each other.

“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s paw, “I just wanted to be sure of you.””
