A gift from God

I can hardly believe it has been 15 years since we first met. Although you and I were very familiar with each other for a few months. I had dreamed about you for years, your name selected before your conception. God had placed you on my heart.

Then you were here. Your Daddy got you first and I watched as you fell in love with him. Daddy's should always be the first love of a little girl. Your perfectly round head... the little bunch of blonde curls on the back of it... the little yellow dress you wore home. Your squeaky little first cry which made us laugh and wonder what in the world we were going to do with this baby. We marvelled at how much of a beloved and missed family member you resembled. He would have been proud, you know.

Most babies lose weight the first week after birth. Not you. You were all business when it came to eating. You still are. Using a spoon came before walking and a goldfish cracker could solve any problem. It still does.

God has placed a special call upon your heart. Seek Him still and he will let you know in time where you will end up.

I love you very much,
Mommy

Aw, how sweet. Every mom can relate to this, even if their baby girl had brown fuzzy hair!
