You changed my life. Another first was the unconditional, all-encompassing love that I felt for you. Love had always been something to be earned and I had learned early in life to never give it away. The price I paid had been dear. I was only twenty years old but as a child I had already experienced many aspects of this world's darkside. Your birth brought me hope of a future far removed from my past.
Soon, I had to leave you in my sister's care and go back to my life five thousand miles away. However, that tiny spark of pure, free love would sustain me for another twelve years. Then, I would finally relent and accept the ultimate gift of love from our Savior. However, my heart tells me He planted your tiny seed of love, the first of many, to pave the way for His future work in my life. You are grown now, and you have become a beautiful young lady. God has blessed me with many other nieces and nephews, and children of my own. Yet I still thank my dear Jesus for you, my first niece, my first taste of life's possibilities.
