Dear Rose,

Welcome to the planet! Just about a year ago, I married your parents, who happen to be two of my very favorite people. I've never been an aunt before, but then, you've never been a niece before, so it will be fun learning the ropes together. When you're a bit older, I'll take you out to wander the tide pools on California's lost coast and teach you about music and books and dinosaurs and space and all the most important stuff. In the mean time, you keep growing and exploring the world, and I'll do my best to make sure the large fish, big cats, and great migrations are still around when you're ready to find them. This planet is a wonderful place and you have so much to look forward to... Love, Aunt Sheril ps - Hope you like that birthday present I sent.
