To my precious baby girl,
A year ago today you were born and the world was changed. I wasn’t there to hear your first tiny cry, to cradle you in my arms and help you go to sleep your first night. I don’t have your first picture or your first little footprint. I wasn’t there to watch over you the 5 days you were in the hospital. Or take that nerve-raking first ride home with you. I missed so much.
My dear Jana, I promise you, I will be joyfully celebrating with you each birthday. I promise that I will be with you as you reach each new milestone and event. I will one day watch you graduate and possibly even walk down the aisle. I will cherish every moment I have with you and thank God every day for bringing you to our family.
Jana, you were not of my flesh but I promise you are deeply from my heart. Daddy and I prayed for you long before we ever knew your beautiful face. God had a bigger plan than all of us expected and knew you were meant for us. I am honored to be your mama and I promise I will do my very best to be the mom you deserve.
Happy birthday my little peanut!! Thank you for joining our family and making our world so much brighter!!
