Once upon a time, there was a child in heaven about to be born. As she stood before Gods throne, she asked, "They tell me that you are sending me to earth tomorrow. How am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
"Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
"But here in heaven I sing and smile. That is enough for me to be happy."
"Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. You will feel your angels love and be happy."
"And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me? I do not know the language that they speak on earth."
"Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what will I do when I need to talk to you?"
"Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."
"I have heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?"
"Your angel will protect you, even if it means risking its own life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."
"Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be with you."
At that moment, there was great excitement in heaven. The choirs of angels raised their voices, and a bright light began to surround the young child. She began to hear earthly voices from the delivery room at the hospital and was drawn toward a long, bright tunnel.
Suddenly, the child thought of one final question: "Oh, God, if I am about to leave you, please tell me my angels name."
My child, He smiled, "You will call your angel, Mommy."
