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.
