Dear Miss MJ –
Have I written you a letter yet? I must have, I have so many things to tell you! But today the one thing I want to tell you is how much you have been on my mind and my heart. Today, my little love, you are getting your forever smile!
Everyone agrees how strange that is. Before you were born we looked at pictures and researched and tried to know what to expect. Then you arrived and it was like, ‘oh, yep. There’s the cleft lip’. Then after your first surgery we saw you again and thought, ‘oh, yep. They changed it’. They didn’t FIX it, they changed it. You were already uniquely you! And now you are getting another smile.
Guess what I will say when I see you again? Oh. Yep. They changed it.
But they can’t change the spunky, resiliant, outspoken (without speaking) you.
I love you MJ!
Aunt Jay Jay
