Mum and Dad were acting strange: they kept laughing without any particular reason and kissing behind my back every time they got the chance. Mum explained that she was pregnant but that we still had to wait a long time before my baby brother was ready to be born. But things turned out differently: even though everybody was expecting him, Leo would never be born. It was very sad news. Sometimes, an embryo has a malformation or is too ill to live. My eyes opened wide: I had never thought how lucky I was to be alive and in good health.
