To My New Daughter

Dear Baby Doll~

I meet you today. You don’t know me yet. And I don’t know you.

I’ve seen a few pictures of you and your pretty blond, curly hair. You had on a Minnie Mouse shirt. Do you like Minnie Mouse?

I hear you like to wear bows in your hair and sparkly necklaces around your neck. We have plenty of each at our house. We even have sparkly fingernail polish. Won’t that be fun?

Our family has prayed for over 2 years for our Baby #3. When we filled out the paperwork at DSS and went through the 8 hour training course we had no idea we would be waiting so long. But God’s timing is perfect.

In a few hours when I see your tiny face and your large eyes, I hope you can’t see the trembling of my hands and the flutters of my heart.

I’m so scared you might not like me.

But even if you don’t like me, God has chosen to put us together. I will start out being your Foster Mama. And I pray that a judge will choose to let my family become your Forever Family through adoption.

You don’t know me yet; and I don’t know you. But I know the God who knows us both.

And I plan on introducing Him to you.

Love,
Your New Mama

  1. God bless you and your new daughter. I always told people “I don’t know what it feels like to be pregnant, but I know what it feels like to be EXPECTING.” Adoption brought three wonderful blessings to us. I know you new baby girl will bless your life as you bless hers. Praying for you all. Love, Sandy

  2. So beautiful! God plans are so much greater than anything we can imagine! Blessings and prayers for all of you. Looking forward to meeting this sweet little girl!
