DannyFotoDear Mia,

I can’t wait to meet you. I can’t wait to hold you and feel you in my arms. I can’t wait to feed you, to bathe you, to clothe you, to make you smile. I can’t wait …

In a few months we will finally see what you look like. We will hear your cries and watch you sleep. You will meet us (daddy and mommy) and all your family and friends that are dying to meet you as well.

I’ve been thinking endlessly about you and my hopes and dreams for you. I’ve been thinking about the kind of mother I want to be for you and about the kind of world I want you to grow up in.

My little princess, you have already helped me so much. You’ve made me remember how amazing life is and how lucky I am to feel you growing inside me. You’ve made me refocus a little on how to achieve the dreams I have for you, daddy and I. So, thank you!

Baby girl, I want you to know that I will always do my best for you. I will do all that I can to give you the best life I can. I will try my utmost to make the right choices for you and set the right limits for you… I will always be there, standing beside you as you make your own way in the world.

I want to live my life in a way you will want to live yours. I want to be a woman you look to for inspiration. I want to be guided by values and goals and morals and dreams that you too will aspire to.

I hope that you will learn to be good and kind and gentle and giving. I hope that you will learn from the people around you that life is best lived with love in your heart. I am sure you will.

I know that life will not be easy always, you will also learn that life can be unkindness and tough but I will be there for you to protect you and to guide you towards all that is good. And when you one day learn of the rest that is there, I hope I have given you the love in your heart and the beliefs in your soul to see you through.

Our story just started and I’m looking forward to hold you tight… I love you with all my heart <3

“Your mommy”
