Letters to My Unborn Child…
Today is the first day of our new life.
For the first time, I’ve made a decision that will be for the better, for the both of us.
I left your father.
It wasn’t easy, and believe me, it was the last thing I wanted to do. But as your mother, your happiness and wellbeing are more important than my own.
One day you will ask me what happened to daddy….I hope I have the strength to be honest with you and not lie.
I hope one day your father will find his way back into your life. I hope one day you will forgive me and understand why I did what I did. All of it.
Above all, I hope you will understand that I did my best to give you all the love and care you deserve. I promise to give you everything you will ever need. No matter what it takes.
My friends think I’m crazy for keeping a journal like this…letters to my child, but I told them this was the kind of thing you did when living alone. Auntie Yasmine and Auntie Ebony wouldn’t understand. They’ve got Uncle Zack and Uncle Brian to talk to every night. Me? I’ve got you.
So, what’s happening in my life?
Well, for starters, my car is on its last leg, I think. I’m trying not to panic, but it’s hard. My savings account is okay, though I’ve dipped into in to pay for moving expenses and getting our home set up. Now to get it furnished; one step at a time. My first priority it to get your room set up, but, I have no idea if you’re a boy or girl! You won’t cooperate when we go to the doctor’s office. But, no worries! Whatever you are, you being healthy is my main concern. I love you…
