"I hold you close to me and I wonder. Will I be your best friend, the one you tell your secrets to? Your protector, the safest place you know? Will we be like my friends and their children? My mother and me?
This I do know: I'll believe in you, support you, watch over you, love you. I'll hang on your words and smile at your stories.
And day by day, month by month, we'll learn who we are together...you and I."
