I wanted to write you a letter to give you something you might cherish forever. I want you to know all of the promises I am making for you. Because you now come first, and I want you to know how much I love you.

I promise to be the best mom I can be

When you arrive into this world, I know I will be stressed to the max because all I will want to be is the perfect mom. I know I won’t ever be that for you, but I do know I will always do my best to be the mom you need, so you can grow up to be the best person you can be.

I promise to raise you the best I can

You may not always like me—heck you may hate me one of these days, but just remember I am doing what I think is best. I am doing these things to help you become an outstanding person and sometimes that comes with things you will not enjoy, like discipline.

But never think for a second that means I do not love you or care for you. Always try and remember that I am doing the things I am out of love never out of hate.

You are the person I was able to make and you better believe that I will make sure you turn out great.

I promise to wait to have you until I am ready and I know your future dad is, too

Babies are a lot of work, but you are special. You deserve the world and I will make sure that you will get that. I promise to wait to have you until your dad and I are ready financially and mentally—no matter how badly I want you because you deserve that.

You deserve the best kind of love and stress-free environment I can give you, so I will make sure I can give that to you.

I promise to give you everything I can

Whether it is attention, love, support, or hugs and kisses. I will always be by your side to give you everything you need. It may not always be what you want, but just know you are my first priority and always will be.

I promise to make sure you never feel alone

Life is hard, and it only gets harder, but I can promise you that you will never feel alone through life’s hardships. I will do everything in my power to keep you positive and remind you how special and important you are to this world.

I don’t ever want you to think you have no one to go to—no matter the problem, I hope you know you can always rely on me to be there for you.

I promise to support you in accomplishing your dreams

No matter your dreams, I will always support them. (Your dad can be the one who tries to remind you to be realistic.) I want you to believe in yourself and know that if you want something badly enough, you can achieve it. As long as you work hard and dedicate your time and heart to that dream, it will happen eventually.

I promise to love you, no matter what

I will always love you. No matter where you are, whether you want to talk to me or not. Whether you hate me or not, I will always love you. You are my baby and nothing will change that. I will do everything in my power to keep you happy, safe and successful.

So please, always remember that my love for you will never change, it will only grow stronger and I will do anything for you as long as I live.

I hope I can be the best mom in the world to you because you deserve it. I can’t wait to meet you one day, you will be so loved.
