Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Dear Cyrille, thanks so much for this beautiful diary and sharing your joy with us.  I'm not generally a girl who goes gaga over babies, but currently I'm dealing with aging parents and end-of-life issues.  Somewhere along the way, I forgot how healing beginnings can be.  I find myself incredibly moved and refreshed for being included here and thank you deeply.

Congratulations to you all and please give my best to Mouna, whose initial experience closely mirrored my own, right down to the dates (my son was due on Feb. 14th, scheduled for mandatory c-section the 2nd, born on Jan. 31 -- he's in his 20s now).

I look forward to, hopefully, meeting you both again at the next meetup and being introduced to little Elwan.

Just one minor quibble -- isn't Liam an Irish name?

(sorry, I had to do that.  It wouldn't be a proper ET introduction without a PN alert)

He's beautiful.  I wish you all the utmost happiness.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
