In glowing paintings and a gentle, soothing text, a family and neighbors prepare as a baby gets closer and closer to being born. Everyone loves the baby, even before he/she is born.

Everyone in the family, and all the neighbors, too, are getting the house and garden ready for the birth of this highly anticipated child. The baby's room is painted with rainbows and stars, special furniture is made and bought, a kite is made, local children create a welcome banner. It feels as if the entire world is waiting just for this one special baby to be born. And when it is born, the parents make this very, very clear: We loved you even before you were born...and we always will.
