They had that weird frisson,
an aura of magic that combined awkwardly with an earthy sense of duty.
Mundane, because they were nothing unique on the suburban streets;
ethereal because their attention was ever somewhere else.
Whatever you said was trivial.
And they had that preciousness which they imposed wherever they went,
compelling attention, constantly reminding you that they carried the future inside,
its contours already drawn, but veiled, private, an inner secret.”

Nicky and Gina was shocked to find out they will become parent again soon enough. Their twin son are already 7 years old and they don’t plan to have baby anymore. They was shocked indeed, but they soon realize God trust them to take care His angel one more time. It’s really moment of joy, a gift they never ready of.
Before that annoucement, Nicky got hard sleep for days. He had weird dream everyday. In his dream, there was little girl follow him all around. He didn’t recognize that little child but he came everyday to his dream. It’s like she wants to say something. Now it makes sense. That little girl may be this little angel in form of fetus. So he gets excited now because he may get baby girl. After have two sons, having girl is really great treasure.
First and second semester was gone quickly like God concerns to make it easy. While she is not young anymore, getting pregnant in near 40 years old really makes Gina be careful. Sometimes she worries so much, but she believes as it’s really a gift from God. He will make it easy.
The third semester isn’t that easy. Entering 8th month, her legs get a bad swallowen so she can’t walk and move seameslessly. She need a wheel chair for her mobilize. She feels pain anytime and is barely to sleep every night. Nicky gets panic because thing wasn’t smooth as wife’s first pregnancy. Especially, they live far from the family so they must fight it by themselves. The last time he brings his wife to doctor around two weeks ago, doctor said her condition is still normal and it’s just another pregnancy blues.
After that periods, Nicky ready to bring Gina to doctor check up again. Perhaps it’s her last check up before delivery which approximately due in early of the month. The twin is at school so they have no worry. Just five minutes during the road, there’s something wrong with Gina. She get terrible stomache. It’s not normal stomache because she said to husband it feels like a contraction. Nicky watch some fluids near his wife so he gets more panic and push his car faster.
Lucky, it takes less than 10 minutes to reach hospital. This road used to have traffic jam but not this time. In hospital, Gina quickly brought to maternity room. Within 7 minutes, Nicky could hear the beautiful voice of baby crying. He can’t help his self from crying. The feeling is just too much and he can wait to see the baby. When he enters the room, his face turns to red like years ago when he had the twin.
“It’s baby girl, honey … we have beautiful angel”, Gina said.
In tears, Nicky hold the baby in his arm. He can’t stop thankful for what the angel he has today. He has three angels now. God really loves his family.
