My child,

There are some things in life that I want you to know. Things that I dream of you having as a mother and the kind of person I hope to raise and eventually send out into the world to navigate your journey on your own.

Know that you will never be alone. Your Dad and I will be here for you every step of the way. We will be your biggest fans and always push you to be the best version of yourself.

You can do whatever you put your mind to in this life. If you are willing to put in the effort, anything is possible. Dream big and work hard to get there. Create the life you want to live.

When someone knocks you down, dig deep + get back up. Every. Single. Time. You are strong and you can do hard things.

I will do my best as your mother to give you the mental tools you need to get you through. Stay strong. Remember in life’s hardest moments that you are loved. When people are unkind, choose kindness and always walk away when needed.

Believe in yourself and believe in others. Everyone deserves to have someone believe in them too.

Choose your friends wisely. Pick those that not only lift you up, but strive to lift others as well. The kind of people that want to be good and do good. You will go so much farther in life and together you can take on the world.

Learn that its the little things + people that are most important in your life. Hold on tightly because you never know what might come next.

Know that I will always be here no matter what. I will be here to cry with you when you are down, celebrate with you when you reach your next goal, and give you love when you need it most.

Most importantly of all, do your best and always be kind. As long as you are doing the best you know how, Mama will be proud.

I love you more than life.

Love, Mom
