Mom: What a surprise! The baby of my dreams. When I was a little girl, my parents gave me, as a Christmas gift, a blonde blue-eyed doll. I told my family that this would be how my future daughter would look, they all laughed, but it was still my dream. When I was 20 years old, one of my sisters persuaded me to enroll in a marriage agency, International Introductions. What good fortune. I saw a tall man who I knew would be the father of my children and my future husband. Three years later on a special spring day I had my baby for the first time. My heart leapt with joy when I saw her beautiful bright blue eyes. My silly little girl dreams not only became a reality, but they surpassed everything I had wanted. My magic doll came to life, a beautiful Colombian American baby whose love, beauty, joy, and amazement grows with every little heartbeat.
