Dear Baby Boy Carlson-da Rocha: Welcome to the world! We are all working to make this world a better place for you and millions of other children... you are born into a world rife with challenges but there are many good people working to resolve these so that the world can be a better place for you and other children. I hope that someday you will think about other babies born long after you and will learn from our mistakes and successes. In doing so you too will contribute to making our world better!*
