“My sacrifice will allow you to grow. To become a beautiful daughter I can now only imagine. Please remember that you are the legacy this family has always desired. The promise we fought to protect. You are and always will be our 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 thought when she carried me. so, i thought i’d write to you, so you can 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, of three things that 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 going to have to figure out together. i love you. your mom.
