Dear Baby Boy,
When I was pregnant with your sister, I was in a very different place in my life. I believe God truly showed up and wrecked my life in all of the right ways when I got pregnant with her. I felt like God was offering me a second chance in life. A new beginning. A restart. I did not take that lightly. Deepening my relationship with God has made me a better business owner, boss, person, mother to her, and now also to you.
I want you to know that only God’s opinion of you matters. At the end of the day, all of the gifts that He has blessed you with need to be shared with the world. I pray that you feel empowered to be able to handle all that life throws at you with strength, grace, and humility.
Son, being born in 2020 is a daunting task. You will have to choose between two roads in life: to conform to the ways of the world, or to be the light that God calls you to be–and the light we all need you to be. I pray and hope that whoever you grow up to be that you do not take this lightly. I hope that you find your worth in God and that you will strive to use all of your gifts for the good of others.
I am so excited for you to join our family. I pray that you complete our family in a way that I could never have imagined. I pray for your relationship with your sister–that you will be the best of friends and always protect each other. God has done some amazing work in our lives individually and as a family. I pray that whatever is in store for us when you come, that God holds our hands and equips us with the courage and strength that we need to face the unknown.
Becoming a mom has reignited my relationship with Jesus and I will always be grateful to you and your sister for that. My walk is what guides my days. It has been a sense of comfort because I know that within the Bible are Jesus’ teachings to direct my every move, and answer my every question. It gives me a sense of peace and confidence to know that I don’t have to walk through this life alone. I pray that you find this peace and confidence as you grow.
I pray that you know how much your dad and I love you, and how much your big sister Skylar loves you. I pray that the Lord shields you from the evil in this world, but if and when you are exposed to the hate and ugliness that exists, I hope you run to us and to God. He is our comfort and He will comfort you as well.
I love you!
