  • My Beautiful Nephew,

    It was such a joy to meet you today, your seventh day here in this world. You are my first nephew and the love I feel for you already mirrors the love I have for my children. Holding you and looking into your big, worldly eyes, I can see how you look a little like your cousin, and I have great hopes that the two of you will be good buddies.

    You have picked two incredible people to be your parents, Little One. Your mumma is so strong, so fiercely determined to do the very best for you. She has endured a lot this last week, more than she ever would have anticipated, but at the centre of it all is an unwavering love for you, a persistence in giving you the best she can. And your daddy has been a constant source of love and support to your mumma, and to you. I can see the pride and love in his eyes, looking at his beautiful boy.

    Congratulations on going home today, to the place you will grow and be loved and make your first memories. You are loved by all of us, Little One, and we are overjoyed you have joined our family.

    Love always, Aunty Kate xoxox
