dear expectant mother
As I try to find the words to express the immense and indescribable gratitude I feel for the gift you are considering bestowing on me, I cannot help but be humbled. So first I’ll say a heartfelt thank you for seeing the potential in me of someone who would be good for your baby. Second, I am deeply moved by your willingness to bless my life. I have always known that I wanted to be a mother. At times, I have wondered if motherhood was only a dream, but there were paths I needed to travel and lessons I needed to learn first. I feel as though all those roads led me here, to you and to your child.
My dreams have changed from those of longing for a child to something much more tangible. I imagine all the things we will learn together. I can’t wait to introduce music as an outlet of communication and expression. I hope to share my love of fantasy, of all that can be imagined through books. I’m especially excited to introduce this baby to all the people that have loved me throughout my life. I’m certain they will demonstrate every day the power of unconditional love and support. I hope that the home I’m offering brings a sense of peace and belonging and love in a world that often seems short of those things.
I hope that we will share a lifelong bond over our shared love of this life.
