Life is a miracle. Every time I hear somebody is pregnant I get a tingly sensation in my stomach. To me having a child is the most amazing feeling in the world. Knowing that inside of you is growing a tiny little thing that is the product of the love you share with that special person is overwhelming. Words cannot describe the feeling of seeing your baby’s face for the first time.
Imagine how happy I was when I find out my cousin was pregnant. It was like I was pregnant too.I was jumping up and down when she told me.
Things weren’t really easy for her and the baby decided to come before his time.

It turned out living there wasn’t so bad after all. It was one of the best years of my life. I made good friends; found and lost love again; made myself proud by overcoming my fear and scuba dove the Blue Hole on the Red Sea. I saw the stars on a moonless night in the middle of the desert; bathe in the Mediterranean; sat in a café from where I could see Jordan, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Rode a camel and a horse around the pyramids; sailed on a falluca across the Nile; descended to the ground to discover ancient treasures on the Valley of the Kings; saw mommies thousands of years old; took belly dance lessons; learn a little Arabic; went inside Keops’ Pyramid (found nothing but dust) and partied with ambassadors from more than 20 countries.
When it was time to go back home, I cried even harder than before thinking of everything I was going to leave behind.
