This is the first of many letters I will be writing you. I want you to know that as I write I am filled with an overwhelming sense of excitement and bliss. It has been 5 years since your father and I have begun our journey to become parents. After traveling down several long and winding paths, I know in my heart that we have finally found the road that will lead us to you. Lately I have been wondering how I got so lucky to be in a position to be given such a beautiful gift. The extraordinary gift of becoming a mother. Not just anybody’s mother, but yours, my dear sweet child. I have been waiting for this gift for a very long time; but for you I can wait longer.
In this, the very first words I give to you, I promise that I will cherish being your mother. I promise that I won’t give up the search until I find you. I promise that the moment I lay my eyes on you I will know that you are mine, and I am yours. I promise that my love for you will never die, but grow like the mightiest of forests. And, my little one, I cannot wait to grab your tiny little hand and walk with you amongst those tall, glorious trees.
