Dearest Baby Girl,
I can’t believe I love someone this much that I haven’t yet met. These 10 months have been long and at times challenging, but I wouldn’t trade them for anything because in a few short hours I will have you. I have had many jobs throughout my life, but being your mother is the one I am most proud of. As your mom I know I will make many mistakes throughout your life and there will be moments I am not proud of, but I hope that you understand all of my choices I make are for you. I will continue to try to be the best mom I can because you deserve the world.
You are being born in a unique time in history. Even though our country is not perfect, I am glad you are joining the world now because it is full of hope and change and people fighting for what they believe in. Women and minority equality are at an all time high, and yet there are many battles left to be won. I can’t wait for all of the progress you get to witness in your lifetime. Your father and I hope to raise you to become a free thinker, independent, adventurous, and a general badass, but know that it is OK to have a softer side and be creative, emotional, and sympathetic too. Being a woman is amazing and powerful and you are perfect just the way you are. Don’t you let anyone try to change you or make you be someone you aren’t proud of. I hope you grow up to follow your passion, wherever that takes you in life. As long as you are doing what makes you truly happy, I will always support your decisions and have your back. The world is going to be a better place because you are in it.
There are so many people in this world who already love you, and I know that everyone you meet will join us in your fan club too. Your father and I can’t wait to meet you tomorrow, it is going to be the best day of our lives.
Love you forever and always,
