Today my life began. My parents do not know it yet, I am as small as a grain of sand. I am a little girl. I will have blonde hair and blue eyes. Just about everything about me has already been decided, even the fact that I will love flowers.
Some say, I am not a real person, that only my mother exists. But, I am a real person, with unique DNA and just as much a life as my mommy and my daddy.
Today my mouth is just beginning to open. Just think, in a year or so I’ll be laughing and later talking. I know what my first word will be; MAMA.
I am growing more and more every day. My arms and legs are beginning to take shape. But I’ll have to wait a long time before those little legs will raise me up to my mommy’s arms, before my arms will be able to gather flowers and embrace my daddy.
My tiny fingers are beginning to form on my hands. Funny how small they are! But I will be able to stroke my mommy’s hair with them.
Today the doctor told my mommy the that I am living just under her heart. Oh, how happy she must be! Are you happy mommy?
My mommy and daddy are probably thinking about names for me. But they don’t even know, I am a little girl. I would like to be called Kathy. I am getting so big already.
My hair is growing. It is smooth and bright and shiny. I wonder what kind of hair my mommy has?
I am just about able to see. It is dark around me. When my mommy brings me into the world it will be full of sunshine and flowers.
I wonder if my mommy hears the whispering of my heart? Some children come into the world a little sick. But my heart is strong and healthy. It beats so evenly: tup-tup, tup-tup. You’ll have a healthy little girl mommy!
Today my mommy killed me.
