To Our Treasured Little Bird,
It is the last day of May in 2017.
There is a strong chance that you’ve already made your stunning debut into the world.
You may have been born today. If so, happy birthday my love!
Maybe you’ve been alive for a little while by now and you’re starting to get the hang of this whole existence outside of the womb. Don’t worry kiddo, you’ll get the trick of it soon enough.
Either way, I can’t be sure; but I can believe that you’re out there somewhere.
You’re just not with us. Not yet.
I’ve been thinking about you a lot lately. I’ve been dreaming of you as well. Each dream sends a signal to my heart, encouraging it to stretch and grow. Just like your tummy mummy had to stretch and grow in all directions to bring you to life; so too does my heart to accomodate all the love I have for you.
If you do exist right now, it is likely that you’re about to experience some of the rarer horrors that human kind has to offer. I am so sorry. It is so unfair and so utterly undeserved. The way we come into the world is the least fair lottery of them all.
It may be of little comfort to you in the years to come, but please know that while you endured; someone cared. Someone worried. Someone ached to hold you and lost sleep wondering how she could get to you. Someone wished she could be there to protect you; to stop anything happening to you other than joy, security and love.
I don’t know who you are yet, or where you are. I don’t know how you’ll make your way to us, nor us to you; but I know that we will find each other and that we will do our absolute best to stop you from ever feeling that kind of pain again. Your future with us comes with a 100% joy guarantee. It will not be all joy all the time. We will hurt and grieve as a family too; but you are owed joy in spades in this life, so we have been banking up all our spare just for you.
That is our job as it is written in the stars.
Little bird, we were born to love you and we will.
We will love you in ways none of us would have ever imagined. It will revolutionise our worlds.
There will be nothing you can do, nor anything you can say that could make us love you any less, nor any more than we already do.
We can’t WAIT to meet you. Please stay strong & I’ll see you in my dreams.
All of our love.
Mum & Dad.
