You were a beautiful surprise.

The promise of a new start in a new home.

Those two blue lines were not just a beginning, we had already pictured you in our minds.

Now you're gone, in one day you left us, only a week after we found out you were there.

Too early for scans or condolence.

We have no picture of you in our minds now, but you've left a little hole in our world.

You were not our first, but I think you might have been our last.

I loved you already.
