My little embaby.
It’s finally here, the day I meet you and welcome you to your hopeful home for the next 9 months. I want you to know how precious you already are to me, how much I have longed for you in my life. You will be my first child, my first everything, really. I hope you will stay in the cozy nook I have made for you. And that you will let me provide you with a safe and comfortable place to grow.
And if you choose to stay in your home until next Christmas, I will teach you how to navigate this crazy world with grace. You will have a mother who would go to the ends of the earth for you. A family that will be by your side to protect and support you. Your family might look different than others because you will get bonus close family members. Not only will you have a Nana, but you get an Auntie and Uncle and cousins to help raise you. You will learn the meaning of family through them.
I promise I will teach you all I know about life, and know in return you have already taught me so much. You have brought me strength I didn’t know existed. You have shown me that love always finds a way and miracles can happen. That through tough times, beauty is revealed.
I still have much to learn about life, and I hope that you will be the one that I get to learn with.
