Written in my journal 3/15/2011 – 24 weeks – end of 2nd trimester
As I wrote “baby,” you moved inside me. I love to feel you stir.
This is your first letter, but in my mind, I have written you more often.
While I sometimes worry I haven’t dedicated enough of my one-on-one time to you, I realize, simultaneously, that you are always on my mind.
It’s impossible not to think of you.
Are you a boy or a girl?
I am curious about your entrance into the world – our world as a growing family.
My fears are being replaced by a calm sense of knowing.
You will fit into our lives beautifully.
It won’t always be easy, of that I am aware. But I am ready for the challenges and lessons you will teach me.
Continue to grow and be comfortable in my womb. I am so honored to be your mother.
Goodnight little little one.
