  • ask when you could drop in to meet her and the baby

Dear __


Model Answer:

Dear Emma,

I cannot believe I am an aunt now! You have become the mother of a sweet baby girl to make me the happiest person in the world. My loves and blessing for both of you.

I regret that I am far away from you. As a matter of fact, I came to Tokyo to attend an official meeting last Monday. My tasks here will occupy me for another week or so I will return to Manhattan on 27th October. I want to see you and your baby as soon as I land, I will probably visit you first and then get back to my apartment. Many congratulations to you and I am sure you would be an excellent mom.

Please do not hesitate to text me or call me if you want me to bring anything for you. I will do some shopping for the baby and any suggestion from you is much welcomed.

I cannot wait to see you both. I have not heard such a thrilling news in decades. My best wished for you all once again.

Yours,

Eugene.

Letter Answer:

Dear Riya,

I've got to know the great news from your uncle who emailed me last night. I am so thrilled to hear the news that I cannot stop myself from writing a letter to you. Many many congratulations to you and the entire Singh family for a healthy baby girl as the newest member of the family. I hope you are in good health. I'm super excited to meet you both.

Sadly, I have to stay here in Singapore for 5 more days as I have a project to deliver to the client in next two days. It is an urgent enhancement requirement which came up a week ago, and I couldn't refuse it. I am travelling back to India at the end of this week.

Let me know, when can I drop at your place next week to have a glimpse of the baby girl. Meanwhile, keep posting me the pictures of the darling girl.

Lots of love
Delnaz.
