A Letter to My Child’s Mother

Dear friend,

I’ve dreamed about you many times.  The kind of dreams that linger in your heart and you can’t seem to shake.   I’ve dreamed about the day you found out you were pregnant, the flood of emotions you felt from the inside out…the kind of raw emotions a woman has when she finds out she’s carrying new life.  I’ve dreamed about the long days and nights you protected them in your womb, the 9 months you grew their perfect little fingers and toes inside of you and the day you birthed them safely into this world like a warrior.  I’ve dreamed of the long nights and tears of uncertainty you shed, holding them tight and longing to know what is best for them, for you, for their future.  There’s a deep wound in my heart that wishes I could go back in time and rewrite this story…rewrite it for them…for you.   I want to rewrite the exact moment you two had to say goodbye.

But I can’t, there’s only one true author of our lives.  I just know that I’ve dreamed…of you…of them.   I’m praying for both of you, for the goodbye that will inevitably happen before I say hello.  The magnitude of the pain you will feel, the loss they will feel, brings me crashing to my knees as a mother, as a woman.   I’m not sure what tragedy of this world will separate you two, but I want you to know that you will always be a hero in their story.

From one mother to another, I want to say thank you.  Thank you for being the brave woman that birthed the precious little life into this world who will one day call me momma too.

With much adoration,


For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11
