My father came home from work to find me in bed, my breast exposed with a stranger sucking my nipple. The shock on his face as it slowly melted down to tears and the sound of his briefcase as it slipped with his hand hitting the floor frightening the stranger to whine. Mind you, the stranger was a female and a day old. An infant being breastfed

“Dad, come and meet your granddaughter, Hope”

He came closer and sat on the bed.

“Want to hold her?”

“Are you sure?”

I nodded. He was so nervous but as soon as he held her, his eyes brightened up

He looked at me with teary eyes.

“She is so beautiful, she looks like your mother”

I smiled.

“Welcome to the family, Hope”
