Dear E and Little A,
Today as we celebrate Mother's Day, I wanted to stop and write you a letter. I truly believe that being a mom is by far my greatest accomplishment in life. I may not do it perfectly and there will be times that I will fail you as a mom but I will try my hardest to be the best mom I can be through God's strength and grace.
My sweet E, you were the blessing that made me a mom. I remember the Mother's Day I was pregnant with you and all of the emotions that came with that day. I remember feeling you move in my womb and hiccup and just being in awe at the life that was growing inside of me. I was overcome that God has chosen me to be your mom and I anxiously awaited your arrival. I remember the day you were born and the realization that I was now responsible for this tiny little life. I have made many mistakes in the past 4.5 years as your mom and I know there will be many more in the future but you always tell me "that's ok mama, I forgive you. Do you forgive me?" Thank you for showing me grace and for helping me become a better mom. I promise to always love you my sweet little chicken noodle! I love you and I am so blessed to be your mom!
Our dear Little A, my heart is missing you today as you are away from our family. I hope that in some way you have experienced a mother's love today. I think of your birth mom and dad and my heart hurts for them as well. I pray that your birth mom feels loved and honored today. They are making a sacrifice that will one day soon allow me to become your mom. I cannot wait to see your face for the very first time and to know that you will be joining our family. I long for the day when you will be placed in my arms and when I can whisper in your ear how much you are truly loved. I promise to always love you my dear girl and cannot wait to watch you blossom.
E and Little A, it is my prayer that both of you would grow to know and love the Lord and to follow Him all the days of your lives. I pray that you would know how very much your daddy and I love you and how very thankful I am that I get to be your mom. I cannot wait to watch the two of you grow up and hope that one day I will have the privilege of seeing you become mothers as well.
I love you with all my heart,
