My Dearest Katelynn,
I knew I wanted to have another baby, but, I didn’t know that it was you that I needed until God placed you in my heart. From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I prayed for you… I asked God to bless me with a healthy little Girl. One to call my own, one whose heart would love and know Jesus. One with ten little toes, ten little fingers, and gorgeous eyes with beautiful long lashes like her Father. One whose head was filled with locks of curls, with a personality like her Lolo Rudy, and with the sass and determination of her Mom, Purita. A little girl who would grow-up brave, independent and one who would make a difference in the lives of many. One who would keep me on my toes, one whose eyes saw the beauty in everything she saw. One who could rough it up with the boys.
And, then you were born. The day you were born you changed everything. You made it known that you marched to the beat of your own drum, that you were born with a purpose, that you are strong and courageous. The moment I held you, Katelynn, I knew that you were the missing piece to our puzzle. You completed our Family.
As you continue to get older, I hope you never lose that twinkle in your eye, I pray that you continue to look at the world as magical and beautiful as you see it, I pray that you continue to keep everyone on their toes with your personality and spunk. I know you’re eager to share your talents and skills with the world, but, in all honesty, the world isn’t ready for you yet. ;]
Thank you, my little Gremlin for blessing us with your grace. We love you more than you’d ever know.
