Much-loved actor and radio host Kate Ritchie's first book is a beautiful tribute to the joy and anticipation of expecting a child.
When you were still a treasured bump, tucked safe away inside, I thought about you night and day and in my sleep - it's true. My heart was full of hope and love. I just couldn't wait to meet you.
A heartwarming story to share with the children in your family.
