We are getting so close to meeting you. It feels as though these nine months have flown right by (your mother may differ on that opinion). We are at the point where you could arrive any day now. We have so much that we want to say to you; so much that we want to teach you.
If I had to choose the very first thing that I hope you learn, that I want you to feel, is that you are loved.
It’s a powerful emotion that will scare you the first time you feel it, but once you know and understand what love is, Son, there is nothing better in this life.
I want you to feel it in your fingers. I want you to feel it in your toes. I want you to feel it pumping straight from your heart and coursing through your veins. It may feel overwhelming at first, but know that love is beautiful, and that it will guide you in all that you do.
There is, of course, much more to learn in life and your mother and I will do our best to teach you everything we can. You will quickly realize that we are still learning and never stop. We want the same for you.
Your mother and I are elated to start this journey with you.
