Dear Courageous Mama who just wants to be loved,

I love you in your moments of celebration.  I love you in your moments of grief.

I love you when you see two lines.  I love you when you when the lines aren’t there.

I love you when your brow is furrowed with worry.  I love you when your smile comes easy.

I love you if you are super prepared for your little one.  I love you if you don’t buy a thing until the day they’re home safe.

I love you when you want to show off your bump.  I love you when you would rather hide from the world.

I love you for wishing time would move quickly.  I love you for wanting to linger in the moments where everything feels right.

I love you for deciding that this baby is your last.  I love you if that’s not a decision you ever get to make.

I love you when you are afraid of more heartbreak.  I love you when you try again.

I love you if you have a baby in your arms.  I love you if you have a baby in your heart.

I love you when you are chasing rainbows.  I love you when you are caught in a storm.

But, most of all, I love you for being courageous.

No matter where your journey to motherhood takes you, you are loved and you are never alone.

Love,

A Courageous Mama Who Loves You
