“Gift of Life”

Don’t you just love spring time? Budding new life around you, happy chirping birds, fresh crisp air and everything else that’s nice. I know it’s already fall but, the miracle growing in my wife’s womb beckons back to spring time!

Our baby boy has been a mover in the womb. We know for sure he loves listening to music–he seems to stop and listen whenever we put headphones on my wife’s belly. He’s been listening to Mozart, Vivaldi & Brahms for the past two months now.

The beginning of new life is so heart-warming and inspiring! We are very eager to meet our baby boy in person, hold him in our arms, smell him, love him.

My wife and I wrote a song for him called “Gift of Life” — another song to add to his regular playlist.

Words by Jacqueline Remo
Composed by Emil Remo

For the first time I felt your fluttering kicks
And I think to myself what miracle this is
A life within me is forming and growing
What gift from our God a new life such as this

The miracle of life has changed me from within
More love I have to give as long as I do live
I’ll protect you forever, forsake you never
(For) this miracle of life has changed me forever

For the first time I held you in my arms
The smell of your skin is innocence and love
The world may be cruel but you’ll always be loved
By your father and mother and most by God above


You will always be a miracle
A gift from above

  1. Awww, this is lovely. Michael is very blessed to have loving parents πŸ˜‰ What a beautiful example. I can’t wait for the baby’s birth. Now I’m crying because I can’t take care of him… I’ll just skype him then. Hey, I offer “Skype Baby Sitting” =) I miss you three! haha

  2. Thanks for all the comments πŸ™‚ It’s an amazing journey into motherhood (and fatherhood for Emil). I’m sure more amazing things are just up ahead… definitely more things to learn. Glad our own parents will be here to show us the ropes in parenting… great to have loving parents!

  3. Wow, i just had the most pleasant goosebumps. It is really a miracle of life a gift from above… =) Thanks for sharing and inspiring. What a beautiful song, congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Remo!

  4. Very beautiful Emil. Your child will cherish those sounds as he/she grows and learns of the beauty of music.

  5. Hi guys! Just stumbled on your site through Twitter. So happy to hear your baby news. What’s your due date?
    We’re having a little girl that’s due Feb. 25th…I’m guessing we’re due somewhere around the same time.
    Congrats again! Little boys are so great!
