Dear Thomas,

Do you know how much we love you?
We are so excited to meet you!
You aren't even here yet....and you've already changed our lives forever!
On March 15th, 2011 we learned you would be joining our family in November. We were so happy!
On June 7th, we were thrilled to find out you were a boy!  Within a few days we had picked your name and started planning your nursery.
On July 5th, we went to our 20 week ultrasound and learned that you had a problem with your heart.  Within the next few weeks you were diagnosed with a serious and rare heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). 
You have a long road ahead of you. We know that God made you for us, and we trust Him to carry through all that is to come. 

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."
--Psalm 139: 13-16
We love you, and we know you are going to be our little miracle!

  3. I love reading this. One day Thomas will love reading it too, of course by then he will already be well aware of how loved he is.
