For my daughter, soon-to-be born
To my beautiful girl

I cannot believe you are almost here. I have known you for so long and yet, we have so much to catch up on.

The world you're about to enter may not be what you expect, but I want you to know your little family will always be here for you, no matter what. You'll recognise your Daddy - he's the one that seems to calm you whenever his hand gently pats my tummy. He works too hard, is really good with gadgets, gives the best hugs and will always have time to play with you and make you giggle. He's looking forward to meeting his little girl. Then there's your brother - he's the one that whispers to you (secrets even I don't know) and sometimes smacks his little hand on my tummy to wake you up. He's loads of fun, very cheeky, loves animals and will always have your back! Then there's me - who will love you too much, cry when you go to school, and try every day to give you the world.

Even though you aren't my only baby, I will make sure we have lots of peaceful moments together getting to know one another. Even before your brother was born, you were always going to be born too - we just needed to wait a little longer for you to get here. Did you know that once upon a time I wanted 6 children?! Not sure I want that many now, but I always knew I wanted more than 1 if I could! We feel so lucky our wish has come true. I also thought I'd be the mother of a tribe of boys, so you are the little princess I never thought I'd have and will always be very special to me.

I have just written your big brother a letter, telling him how great it is to have a sister and about all the wonderful times you two will share together. I'm sure you will prove me right, because girls rock. You will love having him as your brother, just remember to ignore him if he ever tries to say you were adopted or pulls your hair!

My dream for you is to grow into a happy, healthy, self confident, loving young woman, and I will do all that I can to help you achieve this. I cannot wait to meet you - don't stay in there for too much longer!

Lots of love
