More than a year of their marriage has passed and now my friends Melvin and Veronica welcome their first child Rebeca. Her name come form a Hebrew word רִבְקָה (Rivkah) that means to tie up firmly, and this is what her family and friends know Rebeca will be as she grows up, a woman firmly tied to what God has in store for her.
As I did before Mel and Vero’s wedding, I interviewed Mel once again and asked him this time: What does it feel to be a father? His answer was exactly what all of us parents experience when we embrace our babies. In the words of another friend of ours
“Words end when it comes to expressing such love. I used to think that there was no other word that would be more profound than ‘Love,’ but after I had my child I realized the next word is ‘Son'”
In Melvin and Vero’s case that word is “Daughter”
