Dear little one(s),
Today my thoughts have been turning towards you. Towards where you are today, tonight at this very moment. No matter where you are, I am sure life seems big. And scary. And out of control. I just want you to know that there are people who are ready to love you. Me, for one.
On my end, I am getting a place ready for you. A safe place. A quiet, loud, musical, fun place. A place with walls, and warmth in the winter and coolness in the summer. A place with toys and clothes and most of all, love. I am studying and praying and staying up late thinking about you.
I am thinking about how having you in my life will change me, and it will change you. I will become a mother. You will have another adult in your life to "come home to". I will make new "mommy" friends. You will get new cousins. I will be starting something big and new. You will be ending something, and starting something new, that is also big and maybe scary.
What a journey we are on together, already...
Someday soon we will meet and I will learn your name, your favorite activities, your favorite and not so favorite foods. Someday soon, we will talk together, probably cry together, fight together and love together. I will meet your Mom and Dad, you will meet my Mom and Dad. Our lives will become intertwined, for a season or for a lifetime. Who can predict where we will end up?
