I have been sitting on this journaling for quite some time. I’ve tried scrapping it before but never have been happy with it. As soon as I saw Carol’s prompt for the story challenge though, I knew it was time to scrap it. I wrote this when we were trying to fall pregnant and I feared that it may never happen. I had written a letter to Lincoln when we were trying for him, so it was a little bit of journal therapy for me at the time. The photo is a little family selfie we took from around the time I wrote this.
It’s also a lift of this page, Secret Book - Opening page by Carol. I am always so inspired by not only the stories Carol tells but the designs of her pages. Thanks for inspiring us all, Carol! Smile

Thanks for looking.

Journaling: My dear precious Baby, Oh, how I can’t wait until we start this journey together. Your Daddy and I are so excited to meet you already and I know your big brother will love you just so much. So many people ask us already when we plan to add to our family. The answer to that is when you are ready to join us. Do we want another son or a daughter they ask? We really do not mind, we only want you. I want the world for you, always know that. And even though I can’t give it to you, I will try my hardest to give you the guidance, direction, growth, wisdom and freedom to make it yours. More than anything, I want happiness for you. I want you to live a life so fulfilled. I can’t promise that there won’t be hard times but see them for what they are and embrace them. It will make the happy times even more special. We are so excited for you to join our family. Come when you’re ready, precious Baby. We’ll wait for you. Always. Lots of love, Mummy xox
