I could not have supposed that a niece would ever have been so much to me. She is quite after one’s own heart. – Jane Austen
Having a niece is a very common thing, yet we underestimate how important she can become to us. She conquers our heart with her gentleness and grace, and with each passing moment, she means more and more to us, arousing in us the desire to become close to her, to protect, and love her.
