It’s a girl!
The sound of laughter and tears of joy welcoming her to life. Everybody cheering and jumping. They can hardly contain their happiness. It’s the happiest day in every husband and wife’s lives. The day they hold a piece of their hearts in their arms. The day their whole world changes and becomes sweeter and full of innocence. The day they have a new responsibility which is like nothing they had to deal with before. The day they need to realize it’s not about them anymore.
She’s a blessing, an angel who fills their world with love and joy. They watch her grow and blossom day by day. Beautiful and full of life, one of the most affectionate and lively girls one could lay his eyes on. She feels as free as a butterfly and she has the entire world to conquer. The sky is limitless and so are her dreams. They talk to her about the world she lives in; sometimes it seems scary but most of the time she finds it intriguing, arousing her curiosity and excitement. She knows she can reach far beyond what she knows now. She knows she can achieve anything she wants and that her parents will always be there to support her. However, support meant a completely different thing to each of them.
And the day they have been waiting for has come. The day everything changes for her and for every girl, so they say. She is confused and terrified. She doesn’t know what to expect and she can see it in their eyes. The look they had for her has changed. She can hear them talking about her and making plans but she can’t really understand what they are thinking of. But they knew exactly what they needed to do. It was all planned and decided long back, since the day she was born. It was born with her. It was the fate and destiny she can never escape. They completely agreed that it would be as difficult for them as it will be for her, but who knows what’s best for the child better than her own parents.
