Hello, my beautiful daughter-to-be, 

I can’t wait to meet you. I apologize in advance for crying every time I look at you. At least we’ll have that in common. 

I have never been a super patient person so thanks for being willing to help me with that issue. I love that you’re just as excited about making me a better person as I am in hopefully raising you to always be growing better too.

I wanted to let you know a couple of things that most humans forget all too often. 

God loves you very very much. 

You are beautiful and unique and made in His image. 

God made you, and he doesn’t make mistakes or junk, so you are neither. 

Your mom and I love you SO SO much and want to do everything we can to raise you well and help you grow into as strong, passionate, and full of character as an adult as you are cute and into kicking right now. 

I am going to do everything in my power to make myself healthy and strong so we can play catch and soccer, and dance and run and play together for a long long time. 

Did I mention I love you? 

Love, Dad.

PS Charlie is the top forerunner for names. It is not final at this time, but still works for this process.
