Her name is Hope
To my little girl:

Your dad just asked if this was a love letter. I guess it kind of is.

I never got to know MY mother. I have no idea what she must have felt when she carried me. So I thought I’d write to you, so that you could know how HAPPY I am at this very moment. How much your father and I can’t wait to meet you. And I want to make you a promise, three things you will have that I NEVER did. A safe home. Someone to tell you that they love you every single day. And someone to fight for you, no matter what. In other words, a family. So there you go, baby girl. The rest we’re gonna have to figure out together.

I love you.

~ Your Mom
