Daddy and I got to meet you for the first time today. To be honest, I was terrified. Terrified you would be too little or unhealthy. Terrified that we had already lost you.
Well, you were little. Less than a centimeter long but your heartbeat was loud and clear. It was a scary sound; it was small but determined. I couldn’t help but fall in love. Falling in love is what scares me. What if you leave me?
Please don’t leave me. I will suffer many more nights of “morning” sickness and days of anxiety waiting for test results. I promise to not complain, if you promise to keep growing – slowly but determinedly. Can we please come to an agreement?
Your daddy and I are expecting you as an anniversary gift.
