Dear little baby, our precious child,
Do you know how loved you are?
There are so many unknowns about you
But it doesn't matter, cause you're ours.
The color of your eyes may still be a mystery
As well as the shade of your hair.
Will you have your daddy's smile
Or like mama, will your skin be fair?
We love to hear your heart beating,
And your kicks make stronger our faith.
Already your personality is shining through-
Such perseverance and such strength.
I wonder: will you be a graceful dancer
Or would you rather play outdoors?
Will your prefer the cold mountains
Or a summer at the shore?
Do you know you have a sister?
Who will guide you through fun and strife.
She doesn't know it yet,
But you will be a treasure throughout her life.
I hope you grow up and marry a sweet man,
And want babies just the same.
Only then will you truly know
What a blessing you are to my name.
One thing about you is certain,
And that one thing I need you to know:
You are a child of God, dear baby,
And His love for you is more than we could ever bestow.
So whether He gives you to us a while longer
Or takes you home immediately,
Please know you are always loved and protected,
Safe in His arms for all eternity.
