Sweet Child of Mine,
Even though your dad and I have been planning for you for what seems like a very long time, you still managed to surprise us with your quick arrival into our lives (I wonder what that says about your personality…)! Although you are still very delicate at 6 weeks and just beginning your journey, you are very much loved and are already such a huge part of our lives. I promise to do everything I can over the next eight months or so to take good care of you, and to give you the very best start in life that you could have. I know there will be times that will be tough, but I need you to be strong, and for us to work together until I can hold you in my arms.
You should know that I love you with every ounce of my body and that I am so excited to see who you are going to become. You should know that every time I mention you, your dad’s face lights up and he can’t help but grin from ear to ear. You should know that those who are closest to us can’t wait to meet you, and that you are already the apple of your grandparents’ eyes. And you should know that while your dad and I are sometimes scared and not sure that we’ll always know the best way to care for you, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you are always safe and loved—the rest, we’ll figure out as we go!
So take your time, little one, and I hope you’re safe and comfy in there! While I know this is a fragile time for you, I have faith that you’ll be here before we know it. As I said, be strong, because we already love you so much and can’t wait to meet you! I wish I could somehow communicate with you, but for now, my letters to you will have to do.
With all my love,
Change in Plans!
