We were all born with chromozones. Those chromozones can be adults made of something inside us. All of us were chromozones before, like fishes in the sea - the small spec which creates the egg. Congratulations to the egg. The parts of a kid which will be creating sperms go in the egg. Sperms are like worms wiggling inside which creates a kid inside. Congratulations to that kid. Head, eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth, arms, legs. These feet and toes and shoulders and back, stomach and breath and soft gums. And someday when he is out, it will eat kidfood - all different kinds. His first feeding from his mom when he becomes old enough from the feeding he will start on his first bottle of milk. Excitingly excided we all are and how proud we will be to the mom and dad. Winning first place for the kid of the kid. And justice for the kid. I give the kid a gift of wisdom, faith, courage, strength, and harmony will come within. Written for her new cousin by: Sophie Kanat-Alexander, age 24, born with Down syndrome
