My darling granddaughter, I’m not sure if I’m free to share details today, so I’ll just say, welcome to the world, precious little girl. Borrowing from a friend’s sentiments: the world has become a better place with you in it.
You and your mother performed beautifully today. You both have enormous transitions to navigate right now, so rest all you can. Your Dad and grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends here and across the sea, are already surrounding you, dear child, with concentric circles of love. You have a giant team, rooting for you. We’ve got your back. Go get ‘em.
