LITTLE EM IS BIG M’s Christmas wish come true.
This is M’s drawing of her Christmas wish in 2005 when we were in Moscow.
M’s wish came true in 2008! She’s seen here eagerly awaiting the arrival of Little Em… (L-R) Still in the womb at 7 months; almost 8 months; into 8 months; a month before Little Em came into the world.
Big M’s first few glimpses of Little Em in the womb.
After which M wrote Little Em a heartfelt letter with a pledge (never mind it was littered with grammatical and spelling mistakes).
The sisters finally meet! … (L-R) Big M met Little Em – just 3 hours old then – for the first time at the hospital on her way to school; Big sister dropped by again the next day; Little Em came home on the 5th day and Big M rushed from school to see her new sister.
Their first four months (2008).
