Dear Daughter

Dear Daughter,

Hello, Sweetheart. I don't know if you can hear me, but you seem to respond when I laugh or hear Daddy talk. So I'm going to assume that you can for just a little bit.

Tomorrow is a big day for you because it is your birthday! I know it's probably not what you're expecting. I know you'd rather hang out in your hot tub for a few more days or weeks, even. But this is hopefully the ONLY time in your life that diabetes will affect a moment in yours. I did my best to give you the proper place to grow for the past 9 months, but the doctor thinks it's best for you and me if you came out now. Don't be scared. They are the very best and they will keep an eye on you and me the whole time. Then I'll get to hold you just as I have been this whole time, only this time it will be with my hands rather than my belly.

One thing I want you to know more than anything is that you are so SO wanted! What started out as a silent prayer said at Cocoa Beach, Florida turned into your heartbeat a few days later. You are so strong! From your fast heartbeat at every appointment to the kicks and jabs you give me, you've proven to me and your dad that you like to make your presence known. I can't wait to get to know you! Your dad is in love with you already, and he is so excited to meet you. Lean on him for love and encouragement, he will freely give it. We will do our best to teach you about your Heavenly Father who loves you more than we do, if you can believe that!

I'm so anxious to meet you, and I can't wait to hold you. I love you so much!

Your Mommy
