Every morning, before Tarsila Batista goes to work, her husband greets the baby and says, “I’ll always be there for you.” And whenever she does, she starts kicking and moving. Father and daughter seem to have a special bond, and it’s true. He was so moved to meet his girl that he spoke to her while she was still on her mother’s lap.
When the healing group gave her parents a chance to meet their child, Antonella, she rested on her mother’s lap. Tarsila said: “I’ve put her at her best while she’s sleeping but she’s definitely going to be a daddy girl.
The father leaned forward to say and repeat the same words, but this time Antonella opened her eyes and smiled. People from all over the world shared the joy and happiness seen on parents’ faces when the baby smiled.
The special moment was caught on camera and the image has since gone viral, but little Antonella weathered weeks and months from the day she was born until she heard her father speak to her. Babies can process sounds up to 16 weeks after conception, and up to 26 weeks later they respond to external cries and may even be relieved by their parents’ voice.
While Flavio was overcome with devotion to life, Antonella’s mother presented it as a blessing from her master. When he got home, Tarsila posted pictures of herself and her little girl and shared her love with the world, but she was just as bitten with heartbreak and love as her father. She added: “There’s no doubt about it. And I hope that she will never forget this wonderful day.
I can definitely say that Antonella is a lucky girl because she has such kind and warm parents. She is a rare jewel carved by the hand of God and I am so happy for her and Flavio’s family.
