To my sweet Mae,
I am having a hard time believing that you’re almost here. All of the days, hours and minutes I have spent dreaming, planning and preparing for you are almost over and somehow it seems more surreal than ever.
You are truly a miracle. Your dad and I are so thankful that God has demonstrated His perfect love and kindness in choosing us to care for you. We know that you are His child, created according to His perfect plan. Our prayer is that He will give us the daily wisdom we need to raise you according to His ways and that you will soon come to know how deeply cherished you are and that you will never ever be alone.
I have loved you from the very first beat of your heart. You have already turned my entire world around and changed who I am from the inside out. Just knowing you has broken me and shown me more about love than I knew possible. I long for the moment that I can finally see your precious face, breath you in and hold you close.
I am convinced you will look just like daddy. He is so enamored by you already. Every day he leans down to my belly and whispers how much he loves you. I can’t wait for the first time he gets to cradle you up in his arms, it is the very best place in the whole world, I promise.
We have so many fun things planned for you. Your first trip to the beach, your first bike ride…Daddy wants to teach you everything there is to know about music and I can’t wait to get a camera in your hands and see the world through your eyes.
My precious daughter, I love you more than words can say. I am anxiously awaiting your arrival and I am ready for our adventures together to begin.
Love Always, Mommy
