I have a wonderful tale to tell. It is a tale of a very brave woman who labored and labored and shared with her very own mother a beautiful little baby boy.
The brave woman in question is my very own daughter Angelique and the beautiful little baby boy is my very own grandson Domenic.
Magic was afoot, love was in the air, people were getting married and a beautiful little black haired boy was getting ready to be born on the same day in July that his great-aunt had been born 55 years previous.
A Christmas delivery happened on the 12th day of July. It was shortly after noon when the earth smiled in pleasure to welcome Domenic. Domenic was born on July 12, 2009. And though Josephine is Domenic’s big sister, he really is the bigger brother as he weighed 5 lbs. 8 oz. which was 2 oz. more than Josephine.
So my head is spinning and I don’t quite know where the days have gone. But I am happy, very happy indeed.
I did know. I could imagine. I definitely believed it. You see I had already had his big sister for two years. I already knew that love could be this grand. I got it.
My grandson, Domenic Mathias Khan St-Hilaire has given me more pleasure in one day than I have had in years of living. We are better for having Josephine and now her little brother in our lives. Nothing is taken for granted; I know how lucky I am to see them.
Domenic looks quite a bit like his big sister but just as there is no duplicating her, there is no duplicating him. He is one of a kind. There is no one else in the world like him and there never has been and there never will be.
Domenic your future is without boundaries, you have the hopes and dreams of all the tomorrows ahead of you. You are a gift and I love you unconditionally and beyond eternity.
