To the friends who love my child as their own,
I need to say thank you. I may not say it enough, but you really have no idea how much you mean to me.
When I found out I was bringing a little one into the world, I was terrified. I was in an overwhelming state of fear.
Thoughts were flying through my head at a million miles a minute…
The one I couldn’t shake was,
“Can I even be a good mom?”
Before my son got here, you all reassured me that I can do this. I know it may not have seemed like I was listening at the time or that I believed you, but I did.
You were an important part in helping me put together the pieces of me that my anxiety was tearing apart.
When I told you I was going to be a mom, not only did your love for me show, but so did your love for my son.
Before he was even here, you had accepted him and accepted the responsibility of being role models in his life.
No questions asked, you were ready to take this new journey head on with me in raising a respectful, loving, happy young man.
Fast forward almost five months later, and your love for my son has only grown stronger.
Your faith in my abilities as a mom continue to help me build myself confidence. Your excitement for my son’s growth is equivalent to, if not more, than mine.
I have all of the confidence in the world that you all will help me raise a respectful young man.
A young man who is always thankful for the blessings in life. A young man who always respects women.
I know that you all will show my son what a strong woman is.
That you will show him the beauty in life and everything around him. That through your relationship with and love for him, he will see God’s love.
He loves each and every one of you so much. He lights up when he sees you; he knows you’re family.
You’re his aunts and uncles. You’re special to him. I can’t wait till he is walking and talking and truly able to understand the blessings you all are in his life.
This is my thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for being there for us. Thank you for loving my son as if he were your own.
This my thank you. For everything you do.
