My darling babies,
Sometimes I think my heart might explode from all the longing I have to meet you. To see your sweet faces. To kiss your sweet toes. Sometimes at night I dream about what you might look like and long to hold you close to my bosom.
I already love you so much, my sweet angels. I think about what I’d like to teach you and show you and help you discover about the world. And I wonder what lessons you will teach us in return. I am already so thankful for what you will teach me and how you will grow me in character, as an individual and as a parent. I will never be the same after you, and in excited to see how we will shape each other’s lives.
I cannot wait to meet you, my darlings. With you, our world will begin anew.
I dream about your expression when I teach you about growing things, and how sun and water and earth and air help to grow a living being that in turn will grow you.
My sweet babes, I cannot wait to read to you and teach you how to read for yourself. I imagine the excitement in your eyes as you discover new worlds and adventures waiting for you inside of books. I wonder if one of you will be able to read in color, like me.
Little ones, I want to teach you about God and all of His miraculous wonders. Did you know that He made the earth and the grass and the trees and all the living creatures for you? Every morning the colors in the sky at daybreak are a gift for you to take pleasure in. I hope you find wonder and marvel at each individual snowflake, an infinite sky and horizon over the ocean, the ingenuity of humans to build and create, the roar of a lion, and in the ruby red arils of a pomegranate. Every atom, every element, was pieced together and designed for you to marvel at. You, too, are fearfully and wonderfully made, my darling children.
I cannot wait to see what God has planned for your lives. What great things you will do! People you will touch, and souls you will love. I wonder what you will create, learn, build and achieve with your lives, and what your individual talents will be. And I want you to know that we will always be here to encourage and support you as you learn and grow and live.
I want you to know that you will always be loved. And wanted. And accepted. Know that you are beautiful, handsome, strong, intelligent, special, valued, and precious to me.
My darling babes, I can’t wait to meet you.
