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.
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,
