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.
