Recently I have been a mother for the first time. My baby Saüc has become the start of a new amazing stage. I have lived the pregnancy enthusiastically, feeling that this little person I had inside was a part of myself, that he was growing everyday and that, somehow, we would be connected for the rest of our lives.
When Saüc was born I could clearly be certain that he was the biggest treasure that I could ever have, my son, and that I would love and take care of him like I had never done before. He has gifted me with the title of mother and I love him madly. And this love gets stronger everyday.
Besides the mother’s title, Saüc also gave me the chance to know the breeding with affection and the magic of the experience of carrying a baby, what has become something indispensable in this short maternity baggage. I felt madly in love with the sensation of having my baby hanging from me, so I could carry him everywhere, close to him, feeling our link growing and strengthening. I felt like I was the happiest person of the world, I didn’t need anything else. I would climb the mountains with him!
Saüc was born on the Three Kings night, the January 5th. Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar brought me the best present of the world and I will always be thankful to them. I spent the final part of my pregnancy, with my huge tummy, looking for a shelter I like, which I could wear during all the winter feeling protected and warm until the moment he would decide to get out. I imagined how I wanted this shelter to be, so that it could pass this first winter tied close to him. So here is when the idea of Macropus came up, a project that is born thanks to Saüc and for Saüc. A project that is both mine and his. Proud and excited, I have decided to go ahead with this project because all the mothers and fathers of this world can feel their babies close and beat together.
