Cristina, My Superhero Princess
by Kathie Rivera
These are a series of deep personal thoughts about my daughter and my relationship with her. Because I loved you before you were born, before I even knew your name, before I was even me. I loved to take you in my arms, sing you a lullaby when you went to sleep. When the doctor told me that you couldn't come home, I suffered knowing that my treasure would stay away from me.
