My Little Girl

Dear Isabella,

It has been a long time since my last letter to you. For that I am sorry. Time seems to slip away so quickly. You keep me so busy, too, and that leaves me no time to write you a sweet little letter. But you are so peacefully napping and that gives me time to sneak a little note in for you.

Where do I begin? I can hardly believe that you are already two years old. Time has gone by so quickly. Yesterday, Daddy and I went back to Dr. V. He is the doctor we call Dr. Miracles. Without his gentle spirit and wisdom, we would not have you. We are forever thankful for his willingness to help us. You were able to meet him for the first time in your little life. There is nothing like the moment when your child meets the doctor who is responsible for their existence. It melted me heart to know that you two could meet.

Of course, Isabella, we weren't there just so you could meet. We were there because we decided, along with God's help, that it is time to give you a little brother or sister. And since Mommy can't seem to do things on her own, we needed the help from Dr. Miracles. So, we are planning on giving you a sibling next summer. Hopefully, this is God's plan for you, as well, but we will see.

My child, I want so much for you to have someone to play with, spend time with, laugh with, and grow up with. Your Aunt Dee Dee and your Aunt Olivia know the importance of having someone to share life with. As an adult, your sister or brother is so important. You share so much with them. You can cry with them, laugh with them, shop with them, and just be there for them. It's a relationship nobody chooses for themselves, but it is chosen for us. And we are all the better for having that relationship. I want nothing more than for you to have that relationship. Hopefully, we can give you that soon enough.

In the meantime, I am loving all the time I spend with you. I get to watch you grow, laugh, play, explore, and discover.  You are so active and such a quick learner. You continue to bless me with all that you are and all that you do. I love you so very much!!

I promise to write more frequently even if the letters aren't very long. I love you so very much!



Let me know what you thought about my letters!
