A Love Letter to My Unborn Baby: You Are God's Gift to Me

A Love Letter to My Unborn Baby: You Are God’s Gift to Me

Dear baby,

I want you to know how precious you are and always will be to me. You are my first child. My first everything, really.

In the years to come, I will teach you so much, but you have already taught me infinite amounts. You have taught me what it is to be a mother. You have taught me to be selfless. You have taught me pure love. You have taught me that it is possible to have a piece of my heart outside of my body.

As your stay in my belly comes to an end in the next 20 weeks, I was thinking you might treat my belly as a star resort and spa for the rest of your stay. Relax and enjoy the nice warm pool and self-served food.

I pray you get to know real love and real friendship. I want you to be fearless and true to yourself, first and foremost. I don’t ever want you to feel insecure, and I want you to remember these words I am telling you now, because they will always be current and never changing. I just want you to know that I love everything about you.

And it’s such a scary thing, but more than that, it’s beautiful. And I still have so much to learn. Thank you for being the one with whom I get to experience all of these firsts. There is no one else who could have done it. God chose you, my little prince. I pray that you grow up strong and sweet and that you know and love Jesus and that you have a heart for others.

I pray that you never let this world dull your bright and lovely personality. I pray that the world is less cruel to you than it can be. Because it will be cruel. But I’ll do my best to soften it, if even just a little. I pray that you are courageous and kind and generous and patient. I already see so much of this in you, and it makes me so proud to call you mine.

You are our first. You will always be our first. You are my sun, my moon and all my stars, little one.

Love you so much, my dear baby.
