Dear Sweet Andrew,
I can’t believe it’s really been 11 whole months since we laid eyes on you. It’s hard to believe that time has gone by that quickly, when it seems like an eternity since we’ve held you. Your daddy and I miss you so. We wish we were watching you crawl around our floor and enjoy your first summer! There are so many things we had hoped to do with you, but I trust that you are having a marvelous time in heaven. I honestly can’t imagine what you are experiencing, but I look forward to it one day! All I really know is that you are safe and secure and living a life full of love and peace. In reality, you’re the lucky one, right?
Do you know how much we love you? Do you know how much you have impacted our lives…..forever? It’s hard to believe that this time last year, I felt like I was about ready to pop, and I still had 4 whole weeks left with you inside my belly! Despite all the heartburn at the end, I was so excited to meet you. The last week with you was just surreal. The joy was building and I couldn’t even picture what you’d really look like. Though our time with you was way too brief, the amount of love we have for you is hard to even describe. Just when I thought I couldn’t love you anymore, I laid eyes on you for the first time and the love intensified even more.
Although we were sad to say goodbye to you that day, I was so filled with joy at being able to see you…my firstborn little boy. You were quite a big boy, but oh so cute! We miss you everyday, but know that Jesus is being a perfect parent to you. We are so lucky to be your mommy and daddy! You are so special to us and we can’t wait to wrap our arms around you again soon! Happy 11 months, Andrew!
With Unending Love,
