My Sweet Child

My sweet child. I love you more than words can ever say. You are the greatest gift God has given me. The day you were born was the beginning of a new life for myself and your daddy. It was the beginning of the life I have always dreamed of. When I saw your teeny tiny little body I knew instantly it was my honor to protect you, teach you, love you, encourage you, and give you the best life I know how. I am here today as your mother with the promise to make sure all of those things are always taken care of. 

I will protect you from everything I possibly can. I will make sure you know you can always count on me. If something or someone ever scares you, please let me know! I will not judge. I will simply be there to make sure you are okay. If you are ever unsure, come to me, and I will help you as much as I possibly can. You are my daughter. I will protect you. 

I will teach you all I have learned in life and I will stand behind you in hopes that you will teach me what you are learning. You will never stop learning. I will teach you to love yourself and to love others. Love yourself for the beautiful and intelligent child that you are. God has blessed you with an indescribable and infectious personality.You are YOU and please don't ever feel the need to change who you are, because you are amazing. Love others. If you care about someone let them know. You can never love someone too much. I will teach you to respect yourself, because when you respect yourself you will learn to respect others as well. There is nothing negative that can come with respect, so please always remember to show respect to yourself, other children, and your elders. I will teach you to have compassion. You already come by it naturally because you have such a big heart. Compassion is a gift, a gift that gives you the ability to understand how other people feel and to feel what other people feel. When you can feel what other people feel, you are alive. You are one with humanity. The world might try to teach you that humanity is evil, but I will try to teach you otherwise. There is still so much beauty in life, and I hope you are always able to see, feel, touch, and most importantly LIVE a beautiful life. I will teach you to always keep your faith in God. For when you trust in God everything else will fall into place. Have faith! Please, always have faith. I will never stop teaching you. 

I will LOVE you. I will always love you. My love is unconditional. I promise to you that even when you think I am being mean or unfair, it is because I love you. Believe me when I tell you, I only want what is best for you. I will let you know every single day how much I love you. And remember, you can never say "I Love You" enough. 

I will encourage you. My personal mission is to encourage you to be your best YOU! I will be supporting you behind every dream, goal, and idea you will ever have. I will be your #1 fan. You can always count me in! I will encourage you to be your best.

I promise to give you the best life I possibly can. I believe life is what you make it, so therefore I will try my best to instill a positive attitude towards life in you. I want you to see the world through happy eyes. I want you to live the life you are meant to live. I will give you a beautiful life. 

Lastly, I want to thank you. I want to thank you for showing me the beauty in life that I can now show you. I love you Lexiana.


  1. I love this so much Gina, you have expressed the exact feelings that I have for my Ryder. Somtimes we dont know or understand our place in life and feel lost and confused, but all the sudden things fall into place and for some reason God grants us with the most wonderful amazing gift of life. A child with the person that we love more than anything and everything. It makes us a totally new person, and a person we never thought we could even be. The love I see in my son's eyes every day makes me want to be a better person. We are blessed. I will never forget how we were when we met and the wonderful people I feel we both have become today.

  2. Exactly!It's so great to know someone else feels the same way I do about becoming a mother.
