I have four nieces and three grandnieces. It’s a wonderful thing to hold a newborn niece and wonder who she will become. When she is young you can play with her like a living My Size Barbie. Dress her up, take her places, eat popsicles together. But then she grows up and you have another sister and a dear friend. What a great process!
My nieces don’t look like this anymore, all of them have become beautiful and intelligent women who are doing good things in the world. They have started their own families and each one is making positive ripples in her own sphere. I am quite proud of all four of them.
