It had been 7 weeks and I had only seen photos of her on people’s phones and those that were emailed to me. Those I saw online were that of her mum dressing her up in her nicest outfits and posing her on the sofa, bear in mind that Lily is still a baby and oblivious to the antics her mother is putting her through, but what does Lily care, it’s her mother’s love that shines through.
I made a date to visit Lily and her parents, after my travels and jobs in between, I would make the effort to see Lily in person and witness the marvel of what we take for granted, life.
She is so small yet you can see the humanity in her eyes, her soul, and this little thing will grow up to be someone. But at this moment she will rely on the very two people that brought her into this world. It will be up to them to nurture her, keep her safe and guide her and in return Lily will guide her parents to be the best they can at being something which no book nor teacher can ever explain, that of being a mother and father but above all loving parents.
I will be paying Lily a visit in a few months time to see how far she has grown and see how her parents are doing
