It is the most natural thing in the world for babies to reach for their parents when they become hurt or are in trouble, and yet those things last for a person's entire life. Voice recorders from pilots who realize the plane is going to crash will cry out for their mothers. It is the place of warmth and protection for us all.
Even today- when I call my parents (your grandparents) and mom finds out that I had a bit of oral surgery her words give me comfort.
Giving you comfort- that is one of the joys your mom and I have. We hope that you will always think of us that way- always.
