TO MY LITTLE BABY BOY
a day in June, when we first found out, they told me
I was expecting without a doubt.
The shock was amazing since
no I’ve always been told. Adoption or surrogate
was our only road.
The excitement, so overwhelming,
too hold a new baby and comfort and care, the next 6
months will be scary yet have no fear.
Your pictures, to watch you
grow; I love you so much, you don’t even know.
Then came the day, they told
us your sick, what? I said! No, this is a trick.
They don’t think you’ll
make it; at least that’s what they say. Ultrasounds
these days have come a long way.
They told us you’re a
boy, another surprise. We’re all girls except
for Daddy; you’re the new star in his eyes!
You can’t leave us, my
little one, what will we do? We all want to share our
life with you.
You’ll have 2 sisters
and 2 dogs as pets, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles whom
are ready to babysit.
You’re so cute; I can’t
see what they say. I do know, I would like to hold you
You have to be a fighter to
have gotten to where you are now, don’t stop fighting’
my little baby boy, Mommy’s waiting to hold her
bundle of joy.
God is with us, I want you
to know, my prayers and thoughts I know will show.
We need not fear what the Lord
has planned, if he takes you from me, I know you’ll
be in good hands.
You’ll be given your own
pair of wings which is well deserved and I will see
you again some day to hold and kiss and love you like
I already yearn.
Keeping the faith my little
one, a tiny miracle that’s just begun.
May God bless us with a wonderful
baby boy so we can give and show him our family joy.
For Giovanni, with so much
