Since the days before I was born,
My heart beat with yours.
I knew the sounds of your voice,
The songs you sang to put me to sleep,
Your laugh,
Your cries when you thought no one could hear you.
But I was with you,
Laughing and crying with you,
Even then.

You gave me a name when we finally met,
A name God already knew and perhaps
Whispered into your ear.
I watched and memorized your face.
I felt the soft skin of your cheek against mine,
Your hair tickling my nose.
Your voice was the same, and
Your touch was so gentle and warm.

You held my hands in yours and cuddled me in your arms.
I was always safe with you.
You may think I do not remember these things now,
But I do.
No matter how old I am, no matter where I am,
I will never forget that
I am your child
For life.

Hi Kerry. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Your Child for Life, actually did very well in the Birth Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 8th in that Level.

The competition is always intense in Level 1, so you deserve a pat on the back. :-)

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

Again, well done!

Just a quick reminder about this year’s Page Turner Contest for 500 members. If you have a novel in the works (even just the first chapter), this contest is a must to enter:
