A Letter to My Unborn Son

I am so honored to be your mom. I already look forward to you moving in my belly everyday - I need to feel that. When I think about you, I get so emotional. I can not wait to meet you.


I will aggravate you, I'm sure. I will clean you and smell your sweet baby smell as much as I can. You will get tired of seeing my face so close to yours, admiring the miracle that you are.


As your mom, I have a lot of promises for you:


I promise to love you unconditionally, forever.


I promise to protect you in every way I possibly can.


I promise to pray for you daily.


I promise to sing to you.


I promise to try to make you smile as often as I can.


I promise to teach you.


I promise to learn from you.


I promise that we will argue. Tempers will rise. Tears will fall.


I promise to apologize.


I promise you will too.


I promise to teach you right from wrong.


I promise to teach you responsibility and humility.


I promise I won't hand you everything you ever want.


I promise you will learn to work for what you want.


I promise to always be proud of you, whether you work at McDonald's or as a NASA scientist.


I promise to show you love.


I promise to show you how to love - truthfully and wholly.


I promise, I love you so much.
