My Last Letter to Baby Bee

My dearest baby boy,

I can't believe we're finally meeting you tomorrow. We've been through so much together, and it's amazing to me that our dream of you is finally coming true. It still seems so surreal that all of the kicks I've been feeling in Aimee's stomach are really "our baby".

Sometimes it feels like this journey has taken years, and sometimes it feels like no time has gone by at all. We've been so blessed to have Aimee take care of you for the past 9 months. I can't imagine going through this with anyone else after the kindness that she has shown our family. I know that you've been well taken care of. So taken care of, I might add, that you seem to have no intention of coming on your own time.

Aidan, I want you to know how extremely loved you are. By me, by your dad, your grandparents, aunts and uncles (even the ones who aren't related), and all of the wonderful people around us who have helped us come to this point. Know that everyone has your back, and that you will always be surrounded by so much love.

My wish for you is simply to be happy. Know that we will love and accept you no matter what your choices in life are. I won't want you to make your own decisions, but I know that if you're anything like me, you'll have to make mistakes in order to grow. And that's ok.

Know that we will always be here for you. We will always love you. And you are so wanted. It's sounds weird, but the time that I haven't been with you and Aimee I've missed you, and I'm looking forward to feeling complete with you in our lives.

I love you so much, my little baby bee, and I'm so excited to meet you tomorrow.

Your Mama
