Letter to my son

Dear Baby,

If anything ever happens to me before I can tell you this, I’m writing it down so that you will know.

First and foremost, I love you.

I love you with the ferocity of a bear and the gentleness of a butterfly.

You are my greatest gift ever given to me and I thank God daily for you.

Secondly, I will always love you and accept you.

Just as you are.

No matter how you identify.

No matter your sexual orientation.

No matter who you love.

Love is love and I will always support you.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks or says, if you are happy and healthy, that’s all that matters.

Thirdly, please be kind. Be kind because that’s what makes a difference in this world. Kindness is never wrong.

Fourthly, be wise. Wisdom is priceless. Let God be your guide, as He is the wisest of the wise. Strive for wisdom. Seek it out. It will serve you ten thousandfold.

Lastly, you are wanted. I’ve wanted you before I even knew you. Before I even tried to have you, I desired you so. I wanted you more than anything in this world. You are that important to me.

I will always want you.

It doesn’t matter how old you get or what you do or where you are.

You will always be my precious child.

You will always be mine.
