a letter to our son
You are cherished, you are loved, and you are a child of God. We prayed for you and our prayers were answered. We thought it would take years for you to join our family but God had a much different and sweeter plan.
Your Dad and I have big dreams for you and we cannot wait for your arrival. We are already so in love with you. From the moment we saw you as a tiny dot on a screen at 6 weeks we were oh so in love with you. You are truly a blessing and we look forward to you joining us.
I cannot wait to snuggle you tight, to wake up to your cries in the night to care for you, to kiss your sweet nose and lips, to spend my days with you. I wait eagerly for the day you’ll be here as I know my heart and life will change forever in ways that I can’t even imagine.
You have been growing in my womb for nearly 8 months now and each day has brought new joys. From the first movements that felt like little swishes in my tummy to the big kicks and punches you give now. Sometimes I think you must be a gymnast in there, you’re always tumbling around. I love every minute of it. I especially love those little hiccups we’ve recently been able to feel.
Our biggest hope for you in this life is that you know Jesus as your savior and that you walk in relationship with him daily. God has created you perfectly in his perfect timing and we promise to raise you up in a Godly way. Wherever God calls you in this life, we hope you will follow. We desire for you to grow up to be a loving, patient, kind, giving, and humble man. We will do our best to raise you in this way.
We have eleven more weeks until we get to meet you, unless you decide to come sooner. You are so loved by many already and we are beyond thrilled for you to arrive. We love you to the moon and back!
Mom and Dad
