Dear Baby,

First, I need you to know that I love you. I love you so truly, so deeply. It’s been very challenging for me to to convey that love to you because I’ve been so afraid of loosing you. But I finally realized that it doesn’t matter if our time together is long or short, you deserve to know that you are loved.

Second, I hope you are doing well in there. It’s been a rough year for Mommy, not only emotionally but physically; I hope there hasn’t been too much damage to my womb which you call home, I tried really hard to make sure it was healthy and ready for you.

I really do hope that you continue to grow healthy and strong over the next few weeks and when the time is right, you’ll come out to meet me and your Daddy and big brother. We’d really like to meet you, hug you, kiss you.

Did you know that there was someone before you? Not too long ago your big sister filled the very space that you currently cal home with her sweet beauty. She was very brave, and her life has forever changed mine. This journey that you and I have been on often reminds me of the time that I was blessed to have with your sister; sometimes it makes me sad that she’s not still here, I miss her very much.

No matter the future, your life has also had an impact on my life. Through you God has taught me to be brave, even when I’m scared to my core. By carrying you, I’ve been humbled by the privilege that God has allowed me to be the mere vessel that helps to hold you while He forms you piece by piece. Through the journey to meet you, my patience and perseverance has been stretched beyond what I thought I was capable of.

You are precious and loved. You are wanted. Your life matters.

Sweet little one, I really do hope that we get to be together for a long time. Already my arms long to hold you. I know that the amount of time we have together isn’t up to you or me, so for now I’ll keep being thankful for each day that we do get to have.

When the time is right, I can’t wait to meet you and marvel at you.

With all my love,
