a mother's letter to her unborn son...

Dear Son, I saw you for the first time today. You had brown hair and brown eyes. I rocked you for hours and watched you sleep in my arms. I couldn't wait for you to wake up so I could give you a bath and watch you smile. One single tear rolled down my face. I love you.


You turned five today and you wanted a Superman party. There were a lot of boys and you were so excited! I smiled all day long and watched you as you pranced through the yard playing cowboys with your friends. You smashed cake in your dad's face...just because...I laughed (and so did your dad). After a long day, I tucked you in and sang you to sleep. One single tear rolled down my face. I love you.


You got a sister today. You were kind of mad it wasn't a brother, but you said you would "make do". One single tear rolled down my face. I love you. You packed your school bag today and headed off to your first day of 3rd grade. You made sure everything was just perfect. You came home crying because someone was a bully. I held you in my arms and made you cookies, then you helped me pick the vegetables out of my garden...one of your favorite things to do (mine too). One single tear rolled down my face. I love you.


Junior High was a rough time for you and you were changing so much. You yelled at me and told me you didn't think I was being fair. One single tear rolled down my face. I told you I loved you.


You started highschool today. You love sports just like me, so you were excited to finally be able to tryout for the basketball and soccer teams. You made Varsity! I came to every one of your games and you were the best one out there. Even when your team was defeated you encouraged your teammates, just like I would have done. You made me so proud. One single tear rolled down my face. I love you.


You left for college today and I thought my heart was going to break, but as you packed your things, and I saw your excitement, I smiled and knew that God was watching out for you (and now your dad and I had more free time and more money). :) One single tear rolled down my face. I love you.


I watched as you married the woman you love and you had a child of your own. As he was being born, one single tear rolled down your cheek and you whispered, "I love you" to your son. One single tear rolled down my cheek as I watched. I love you.


I got sick tonight, the doctor said it wouldn't be long. You were right by my bedside, praying, as the angels took me on my journey to heaven. One single tear rolled down your face. You said "I love you".


I watched the rest of your life from heaven and I'm the proudest mother up here. You turned out to be an amazing man after God's own heart. Your father and I trained you in the way you should go and you walked that path. One single tear is rolling down my face. I love you. I met your birth mother today, and she told me that she was grateful God chose me and your dad to raise you. One single tear rolled down her cheek and she told me she did it because she loved you. As the tears flowed down and wouldn't stop, I told her that I loved her, because without her, I would have never have had a chance to love my son. I couldn't possibly love you more. Your Mother "Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed." Luke 23:29
