My Treasure – Nisha Mellon
‘A Special Gift: My Baby Bracelet’
‘I was born on 9 November 2002 and was given this baby bracelet by my godfather John for my christening. John bought the bracelet in Holland where he lives. He travelled over to Ireland for the christening and stayed with us for two weeks during his visit. John is my father’s school friend and we don’t see him very often, although we sometimes speak on the phone. The last time we saw John was two years ago. I treasure the baby bracelet because it reminds me of him’.
