To My Unborn Daughter 

The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world, there will not be, another child like him.

-Pablo Casals

Baby Girl, let me introduce myself. This is mommy.

I’m that voice you hear, day in and day out. Singing various songs to you and voicing my worries and concerns throughout the day, when it’s just the two of us.

I’m that voice that says, ‘I love you pudding’ on a daily basis and asks if you’re ok.

I am also the person whose heart you have stolen and blessed at the same time.

I am mommy. It is my womb that you are resting in, playing in and doing flips in, that is keeping you warm and close until you’re ready to bless us with your presence.

It’s October 29, 2015 and I’m anxiously awaiting your arrival, your birthday. I wanted to say a few things before you came, and to tell you thank you.

Thank you for helping me to grow up. Before I became pregnant, I wasn’t a terrible person, but I, like many people could always do better. I was happy with the person I was and was becoming, but I always knew there was room for improvement. However, I didn’t realise how much until I became pregnant with you.

Baby girl, you have given me a sense of purpose. You have taught me to become selfless and showed me what sacrifice truly is. I now live for you. Everything I do is for you. You are my driving force and motivation. Baby Girl, I thank you.

Thank you for also showing me what true love is. I thank the Lord everyday for picking me to be your mommy. It’s an honour that can never be matched.  My love for you is limitless and people always say that you love your child before you meet them. It’s so cliché, yet so true. Baby Girl, again I thank you.

Now, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t scared though. All I want to do is protect you and ensure you are well taken care of. I pray to God everyday that you’re healthy and all is and will be well. I never knew a worry like this until I became pregnant with you. It’s because of you I am becoming the woman I was meant to be, and I will do my very, very best to ensure you become the woman you are meant to be as well.

Baby Girl, I also want to apologize in advance, for any mistakes I may make and I hope they are very few. I am new to this, so please bare with me, but with the love and support from your daddy and our family and friends, those mistakes will be very few and not many.

So Baby Girl, soon we will officially meet. You’re my love and my heartbeat. I’ll see you soon my precious daughter, hopefully in December.

Mommy loves you, now, always and forever.
