Description

Birth announcement sent by a single lesbian mother following the birth of her eight-month-old son, Samuel (whom she asked me to name). See also her 2nd Birthday video message.

In loving memory of my beautiful and perfect baby boy
Conceived on May 8th, 2010
Flew away with the angels on January 10th, 2011
Was born sleeping on January 11th, 2011
Was due on February 7th, 2011

I will forever be proud of my beloved son,
Your existence inside me gave me the happiest and
most wonderful 8 months of my life. I am grateful
we shared so much during the short time we had together.
My life will never be the same again.

Thank you Samuel, I will miss you so much,
ti amo pulciacchiotto,
La tua mamma
