A letter to my daughter.

Dear Brynn,
Growing up, when I envisioned my life as a mother, it always included a daughter.

Maybe it's because I am one of three daughters myself.

Maybe it's because I've always had a wonderful relationship with my own mother.

The exact reason, I'm not sure of, but I do know that having a daughter is simply something that I've always seen in my life.

As I got older, I swore I was destined to be a mother of boys. And what a wonderful life that would have been.

But I think, deep down inside, I would have felt like something was missing.

You.

I loved you before I met you.

What the future holds for us, I have no idea. But I do know that it will be wonderful. Because it's a life with you.

Today is your birthday.

A day that I will remember forever. A day that I've envisioned since I was a little girl myself. And it's here.

Today I get to meet you. I get to hold you in my arms. I get to kiss you, and hug you, and hold your little hand.

Growing up, when I envisioned my life as a mother, it always included you.

And today our story begins. As mother and daughter.

I'll see you soon, sweet baby girl.

I love you,
Mom

Ah, you just brought out a whole bunch of emotions from when I had Mady. Add that to my post-partum hormone roller coaster and you have a very weepy Suzanne. That was a beatiful letter!
