(1) 1977

Under the foliage of a giant banyan tree, a young couple sits quietly. There's a hint of excitement in the air, revealed only by their shy smiles and the sparkles in their deep brown eyes.

In between them, in the coolness of the shades, is a tiny little bundle secured on a bouncy cradle. Her toothless giggles are the only sounds they hear, her shiny crescent-shaped eyes are the only light they see. 

It's been a few sleepless nights since they welcomed this creature into the world, but everything has already changed. The mundane life has taken on a grand sense of purpose, saturated with possibilities and hope as well as confusion and frustration -- such an exciting and challenging combination! 

So, as mom and dad accelerate into the second gear, my life begins.
