Dear Sweet Pea:

I can't wait to one day bring you home and become a forever family. As I daydream of what our life will be like together, I can't help but imagine all of the special moments that we are sure to have.

I can't wait to hold you in my arms for the first time.
I can't wait for our home to be filled with the sound of your unique cry.
I can't wait to rock you to sleep.
I can't wait to see your daddy snuggle with you.
I can't wait to watch you learn how to crawl.
I can't wait for you to learn how to say "mama."
I can't wait for the day that you take your first step.
I can't wait to put a band-aid on your first owie.
I can't wait for daddy to teach you how to ride a bike.
I can't wait to see you wear a backpack on your first day of school.
I can't wait to teach you right from wrong.
I can't wait to watch you learn & grow to become the person that you're meant to be.

I want you to know, my sweet pea, that you will be coming to our home in a very special way. You will be loved more than most babies because you will have two mommies - me and the special mommy that brought you here to earth. She loves you more than you could possibly know and she wants you to have the best life possible. I can't wait for the day that we'll get to meet your special mommy and she'll tell us that she wants us to be your parents.

My first gift to you is your very own room, designed with only you in my heart. I'm so excited for the day that we get to bring you home from the hospital and lay you in your crib for the first time. I love you, my sweet pea!

Love,
Mommy

I LOVE IT! Your letter brought me to tears. Your room is way too cute. I am so glad you did this. When we were doing the waiting thing, I was too scared to even clean out the room. Even when we brought Charlee home I only had a cradle, dresser and a rocker in there.

Later I realized I missed a huge step in preparing to be a parent. I didn't let myself dream about it. Because I was trying to protect my heart. Really I just missed out. It is hard to explain. I guess what I saying is I am glad you are prepared and have a plan. Thanks for sharing your dreams with us.

So this time in our waiting stage I am going to dream, I am going to plan and I will have a room already for the baby. And who knows I might finish Charlee's room in the processes. And I am calling you to consult and to help! You are so talented.
