Say her first word, Take her first step, be happy.
The price I paid for my wishes:
She became a strong young woman who thrives without me.
This was done for Weekend Trifecta
On to the weekend challenge. The Monkey’s

granted wishes. We are asking you to write 33 words exactly about three wishes
that come at a high price to the wisher.
