Birthday Eve

Dear Molly and Jackson,

We are in the final homestretch of the amazingly long and complicated journey that brought you into existence.  I cannot begin to explain how much I love you, and you aren't even born yet.  Tonight, I am praying for everything to go smoothly and for you two to come into this world kicking and screaming.  Nothing else matters at this moment except that you are healthy. 

Your Daddy is beyond excited to meet you both- I have never seen him so happy and so full of anticipation before.  When I get anxious about how our lives are about to change, I look at him and realize that this is exactly the plan God had in mind for us.  You aren't puzzle pieces that complete a half-finished picture, but are the embellishments that enhance something that was already pretty perfect to begin with.  

Please know that you are loved beyond measure and you will never, ever have reason to doubt how much you were wanted.  I am in awe of you already, and cannot believe that you are mine. 



  1. All morning I've been thinking... 'I wonder if those babies are here yet!!!!' So excited for your little family :)

  2. Yay!!!! Your post made me cry. I am so happy for you and your hubby. Can't wait to see those babies.
