Dear Baby,

We attended the mass today. We didn’t sit at the Children’s Section, instead, we positioned ourselves near the main door. For the first time in six months of going to the church, it was your first time to be talkative while the mass was going on. You were also singing! We went to the adoration chapel; you’re waiting outside, but Mommy could hear your voice while I was praying. Hehe.

Some people could be really mean or are they just showing some concerns. Someone said, a friend, that we should not bring you often outside for you are quite small for your age; it’s hot outside so we must let you drink water every now and then so as not to get hydrated. Good point there. I gave you water after she said that.

While we were waiting for a few minutes outside, an Indian called my attention: “Ma’am.” I looked at him and thought he would just ask for something. Here’s what he said to me (was referring to you or to me?): “Small Filipina”. If he was referring to me, good Lord, there’s no problem with that. I don’t care at all. But if that man was referring to you, HOGWASH!

Was he mean or was he crazy? Both. First, he doesn’t know you nor me. It was his first time to see you. He doesn’t even know your age. He doesn’t know anything about you. I was caught off guard, baby. I wasn’t able to answer back. I wasn’t even able to yell at him (that’s an exaggeration, baby).

We were still at the vicinity of the church so God allowed Mommy not to answer back at that intruder. That man was a tall, walking, thin stick. He may have some problems that’s why he wanted to pick on some people to feel lighter about himself. So, baby, it means that whatever some people would throw at us, it doesn’t mean they are judging you or me or anyone they want to belittle; they are belittling something they don’t want for themselves or something that they are scared about themselves.

Anyway, baby, I want you to know that we cannot please everyone around us. But just the same, remain tough as you are. You are an incredible, gifted, multi-talented person. You’re dearly loved by Daddy and Mommy and by everyone in our families back home. Most importantly, God loves you so much! Hang on there, baby. No matter what other people say about you, about us, about our appearances, it doesn’t make less of what we are. You’re unique. You’re just a special person. So, cheer up!

Here’s one secret I want to tell you, baby: “Small people usually have big minds”….Always remember that.
