Dear Unborn Child,
It is due to some unfortunate circumstances that we are where we are today. In the past, humanity made some major mistakes, leading to a war that almost destroyed us. Some of us were spared at the hands of the Oankali, an alien race. However, as you’ll learn everyone has their own agenda. Seeing as how you are genetically part Oankali, it is my hopes that you won’t look too different from the rest of us. Perhaps you’ll be a quick learner, and will adapt more easily to this new world than we have. I hope that you’ll manage to live and learn and act like us, despite your genetics. If anything should happen to you, I hope that you’ll have matured enough to handle the situations to the best of your abilities.
