Hello everyone! I am writing to you to relay good news today, on the 11th anniversary of my debut.
A new life has finally come to me. I have been itching to tell you… I am a soon-to-be-mom and am already five months pregnant!!
The word Mom is still so strange and new to me, and there are full of surprises, but I am waiting patiently for the healthy birth of my baby angel.
To those who read this, I ask that you send your blessings and prayers and please congratulate us. Also, please slightly share any good information (about being a new mom). Nice to meet you Ssook Ssook (baby nickname).
