Naomi, you are six today. Six. You are so big now: I remember that day you were born so well. You changed my life, like your mother had the year before. Your face, the first time I saw it, was a revelation. This morning too, as you stood in your room looking up at me, waking up to your birthday: a revelation. Naomi, I loved you when you were born and I love you now and every day with you has been better than every day without you.
