I hope this letter finds you well. First off, let me apologize for the length, I’ve been absolutely frantic lately. I’ve been caught up in more court business than I’d like and I’ve been walking around this city more times than I can really count. That being said, I just had to write to you because I was told a rather astonishing piece of news. Sings has told me by way of his letter that you’ve given birth to your child. Congratulations! Named him Mart? Or her? He didn’t mention the sex of the baby and it was mostly in passing. Honestly, I was expecting him to go on and on about the new addition, but he seemed rather dodgy about subject. Maybe I read too much into his letter. Then again, that’s what I do, right? Reading, that is.
The strangest part of being here is that I’m not the only one with my trait. My entire family here has it. Even the ones that don’t use magic. It’s so strange and yet very comforting at the same time. Being with my blood relatives has been nothing short of amazing. They’re nothing like what I expected them to be and that’s a good thing. My uncle is nothing like my gather and my grandfather is the sweetest man I’ve ever met. I have two beautiful cousins named Anise Lorraine and Jeanne. It’s all quite wonderful here.
I hope you’re quite wonderful with your baby and husband. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

I’m so pleased to hear you’ve found your family. I know how hard it was for you losing the family you grew up with and feeling all alone, and this is amazing. We’ll have to make the trip out sometime so we can meet them. They sound like wonderful people.
Her full name is actually Aina Martin, but it’s a bit too long for regular use. Sings is a bit…reluctant to grow attached to her. I think she makes him think about his daughter too much and maybe he feels like he’d be betraying her by caring about another child. I feel awful for putting him through this and hope he’ll feel better soon. I don’t want her to grow up asking why her uncle won’t pay attention to her, but I know Sings has been through a lot recently and it’s very hard on him. I don’t really know what to do. Do you have any advice, by any chance?
Hope I’ll hear more from you!
