A letter to my unborn child

To my darling daughter,

I haven’t even met you yet and I already love you beyond belief. For the last 8 months I have carried you with me. I’ve felt your first little flutters when you were tiny and the waves of movement as you’ve grown. My body has been changing in ways I didn’t think were possible. Just for you little one.

I’m looking forward to the day when I get to hold you in my arms. I can’t wait to see the look on your Daddys face when he sees you for the first time. We have been so excited for your arrival into this world. We talk to you, play with you and enjoy every moment of the special bond we have with you already.

I can only hope that we can be the parents that you deserve. We want to teach you to follow your own heart, to dream like there aren’t any limits and to feel the unconditional love of the family around you. We promise to guide you through life in the best way we can. We will let you make your own way but will never be too far behind to catch you if you fall.

We know the journey we have ahead of us is going to be the most amazing one. There will be up and downs. The happiest of times AND the most testing. But please know little one that you were brought into this world with the enormous love that your Daddy and I have for each other and that love has created a new life. That’s YOU… our special, beautiful, one of a kind daughter.

All of my love
