One of the happiest days of my life was when I discovered that I was going to have another little jumping bean in my life. You were a very much wanted gift, so much so that your brother even put in a special order to Santa Claus for you to join our family. There were tears of happiness in everyone's eyes when we found out that you really were going to come to join in our life.
Chloe, you are such a dream come true for us all. We had thought that it wouldn't be likely for our family to expand due to mommy's health issues, only to find out that miracles DO come true. I want you to know that your mommy has fought very hard to make you the healthiest little bean possible. You have proven to everyone that you are a fighter. You are going to be born with enormous strength and to get through whatever life should throw at you. I only hope that your battles teach you more and more about yourself, that's the purpose behind the challenges that we shall meet. Every experience, every random meeting can teach you something about yourself and the world if you take the time to look deep inside of it.
Along your way, you will meet challenges. Dr. Seuss, a great children's author, in Oh, the Places You'll Go said "I know you'll hike far and face up to your challenges whatever they are". He also went on to say that you would encounter things that might scare you and make you not want to go on. I want to tell you that for those scary parts, I'll try to be there to hold your hand through them, whether physically or virtually. I want to tell you that you'll make it through them with ease. My greatest challenges have been my health. I've had more than my fair share of doctor's appointments and medical tests, along with diagnoses thrown at me. I hope that you never have to encounter any of these, but if you do, know that you will have an understanding mommy to stand right there beside you.
Your life is already filled with so much love and you haven't even arrived to the world yet. Know each and every day that you are loved. I hope that you never have to feel alone, but if you do, that you can remember that mommy always and will be forever right there in your heart to make you less alone.
Chloe, I love you with all my heart, now and forever, just as I love daddy and Jacob with all my heart.
