*A journey in love and hope*

From
hormones and acupuncture
to
amazement and hope
it’s been
8 loooooooooong months

of
love and fear
anxiety and excitement
hope and bittersweet memories
panic and happiness

but
Malou’s
brother is finally here.

After a very speedy induction,
and emergency post-partum surgery on me,
Liam Johannes
made his parents
the happiest they’ve ever been.


Liam looks like
Malou,
with long toes and fingers
and the same chin and nose and ears,
except Liam has
blond hair
and is more than twice the size of
Malou
(3200 g as opposed to 1400 g).
