to my ladybug

Dear Ladybug,

The time is almost here - the day your Daddy and I get to meet you face to face. I've had so many emotions these past few weeks; thinking about that moment. What will I do? Will I cry tears of joy? Will I shriek in excitement? Will everything seem too surreal for me to do much of anything but look at you in awe? You're a beautiful creation - a precious gift - given to Daddy and I.

All my life, as far back as I can remember, I've wanted to be a mother. Lord-willing, that desire will soon be granted. My life will forever change. I can't wait to be your mom. I can't wait to smell your baby smells, touch your baby-soft skin, and hear your sweet baby coos.

Oh there will be so many times I will make mistakes. I haven't been around babies very much. Please bear with me as I learn how to best provide for your needs (I hear the "motherly instinct" can be MIA those first few weeks).

This will be a growing experience for all three of us. It will be a new and exciting adventure. I must admit, I'm a little nervous - but extremely excited all at the same time. My prayer is that God will use me to point you to Christ; and that He would open your eyes to your need for Him at an early age.

I love you, my sweet baby. I'll see you soon!!

You will probably cry - tears of both joy & relief. And yes, be in complete & utter awe! It is A-MAY-ZING!!!! -Jen Knox (-;
