Today is October 21, 2011. This morning, I became your Mama. Your Daddy and I are so thrilled, overjoyed and excited at the prospect of meeting your sweet face this summer. I have prayed for you. Your big sister is going to love you so, so much. This family will welcome you with open arms and will fall so deep in love with you. You will be ours and we will be yours.
Logically, it just doesn’t make sense but I know that with your presence, more love will enter our hearts. We won’t have to split ourselves in two between your big sister and you – you will bring more love to us and you will make our hearts expand.
I am bursting today. Just bursting.
I anticipate feeling you move inside me. And then seeing your face. Naming you. Watching you grow, and learn, and develop. I have no idea who you will be or what you will become but I do know this: I will love you in each and every moment. The depth I feel for you goes beyond words.
You, my second child, are my heart.
I love you,
