I’m happy you will never know who I was before you. No one to look up to back then. Even though you did not choose to come into this life. I’m always thankful for your existence. To know that I was blessed with the opportunity to hold you in me, love you and guide you like I am now and will forever. It’s the best job in the world. You challenge me to be better everyday. Not just for you but for myself. You are my best friend girl. I have to balance being a mother and friend. It isn’t easy. We have grown up together. I can’t believe 8 years have gone by. I blink and you are two sizes bigger, smarter and even more lovable. I know that you aren’t in the ideal household. No father in ours. I hope you know that I wish I could give you what your heart desires. A happy home. I don’t know when or how long it will take but one day baby. One day, you will have the relationship you long to have with someone and we will all be a family. Until then I hope I am enough. I hope you never go one day without feeling loved. I want you to be exactly who you are meant to be, want to be. Whatever I need to do to help you achieve that I will. You are my first true love. Our journey has been nothing but wonderful. The best part is that we aren’t done. We have so much time left together. I plan to give you so much love and commit myself to your growth. Your future. Thank you for saving me baby. Thank you for giving me purpose.
