To my sweet baby,

I was only 19 when I found out about you. I was terrified to tell not just your dad but your grandma too. I’m so sorry I didn’t fight for you. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. I hope you know how much we loved and cared for you. In fact, your grandma loved you so much she helped me understand that I couldn’t give you the best life. I was so lost at the time that I couldn’t provide you the home, the family or the love you deserved. I’m so thankful that you aren’t alone and have your great grandma and auntie Nikki with you. I know you bring smiles to their faces every day. Even though you aren’t physically here I feel your love and forgiveness. I know that you are a part of all of us. You’re the reason we get a feeling to smile or laugh when we feel lost or sad. You’re our feeling of peace whenever we’re overwhelmed. You’re the gentle breeze we feel reminding us to take in the beauty and grace of God around us. One day your brother and sister will know you just as I do. You are so instrumental to our lives. My sweet baby boy thank you for choosing me to be your mommy and until the day we meet again please know I will always love you.
