My Dear Sweet JourneyBaby(s) to be,
I think of you every day. I am trying absolutely everything in my power to get my body ready to receive you in.
We have a great life and we are ready for you to bless us with your presence.
Your Daddy wants to hug and kiss you and chase the monsters away for you. He is a good Dad and he loves to play, read stories and go to the park!! He will go to the ends of the earth to protect you and take it from me, there is no better comfort than a hug from your Dad.
Your brother loves babies, even a little baby he sees on the street, he wants to go and see. He is a pretty considered fellow but once he has sized you up and you meet his approval, you will be protected for life.
JourneyDog will also protect you, he too will need a litte time to size you up but once he realises that you are his people, he will lay out any big or small dog that comes close to you. He is also willing to clean up any food that you may drop on the floor, he's just that kind of dog.
There is something that we need from you, our little dear one. We need you to be tenacious, we need you to (at the right time) grab on and not let go. We need you to not give up. I will provide as many nutrients as you can possibly want but you need to grab on and grow and grow and grow.
We are ready for the love in our family to once again expand exponetially and embrace you. You are already loved. You are already the most wanted child on earth. You are already precious to us.
My darling, I see you in my dreams. I already hold you and sing my made up silly songs to make you laugh, to sooth you when you are upset and to send you off to sleep. I want to be your soft place to land. I want to be your anchor, your support. I will wipe away your tears when you cry, I will gladly get up in the middle of the night to feed you or to soothe your fears. I will nurse you when you are sick.
Over the next 120 days, I will leave to go to Thailand and we will be together. Over the next 120 days, I promise to do everything in my power to ensure that you have the most perfect place to grow. Over the next 120 days, I will count down every moment and saturate every thought with the hope that you will come to your family.
I love you already. I have loved you for years. You are in my heart.
Lots of love,
Your Mummy to Be
