Dear Little Girl,
I could hardly wait until my doctor’s appointment Friday, August 7th. It was my 20 week ultrasound and we were going to get to see you for the first time (well, the first time since you looked like a gummy bear.) Since those moments, I haven’t been able to wipe this smile off of my face.
You are so beautiful.
It was incredible, truly, to hear that your heart was healthy with all four chambers, that your umbilical cord had the right components, that your spine was strong, and your bladder was working. I saw your mouth opening and closing, and you were quite active, waving your arms, and once giving a “praise the Lord” gesture. I loved every minute of it!
I thank the Lord for the way He is knitting you together, and that He chose me to be your mother.
