A Child is Born

Julie Taha, Christ­mas Eve 2010.

On Christ­mas Eve, Julie kicked and screamed her way through a C‑section, arriv­ing in Indi­anapo­lis, a tiny spot on the west­ern hemi­sphere of Plan­et Earth.

And now she won’t stop yawning.

She gets that bored indif­fer­ence from her uncle, but luck­i­ly every­thing else is her par­ents: at a slight two-and-a-half kilos, fair-skinned and but­ton-nosed, she’s her father thir­ty years ago. And her full pink cheeks and thick head of hair are her mother’s.

Julie Taha, my niece, Tarek and Zeina’s daugh­ter, I can’t wait to meet you!
