A Letter To Our Future Babies

To My Sweet Babies,

How is it possible to love you this much? I know I don’t know you yet, but I think about you all the time. I pray for you all the time too. I pray for you by name. I pray that you would come soon. I pray that you would come to know the Lord at a young age. I pray that your body would be created healthy in His image. I pray that you would know how loved you are. It’s such an honor to pray for you.

In faith, I cleaned out your room two years ago and I still go in there every day. Around the same time I started praying on my knees for you and even more recently I also built a war room. It’s lonely by myself, but I am believing one day soon you will join me there too. I can’t wait to rock you to sleep, pray with you, change your dirty diaper, read a book, or snuggle with you. I don’t care how the time is spent, I just want you with me.

I’m actually not the only one praying, but there are people who I have never even met who are praying for you too. It’s not just people in Texas praying for you, but there are people all over the world who are praying. Anytime prayer is offered, we say yes! Whether it is every Sunday at church or healing prayer we ask anyone and everyone who is willing to join us in prayer, to pray. It leaves me in awe to think about how many people are praying for you.

There are days I don’t want to get out of bed. It would be easier if I didn’t have to. The wait for you has been so hard. So so so hard. The pain is extreme. I have cried so many tears for you. It has been one long, ongoing heartache. I have had to wait and wait and wait some more. It would be so much easier to give up. It would be so much easier to move on with life and stop waiting for you, but I love you too much to do that. I won’t stop asking and believing until I am holding you in my arms.

I want you to know I would do anything for you. Not only would I do anything for you now, before you are even here, but for forever and always too. Despite whatever trial you face, I hope that you stay strong and persistent in the Lord. He is on your side. He is for you. Remember that with faith, nothing is impossible with God. You are a living testimony of that truth.

If I could do anything to have you be in my arms sooner, I would. But, I know it’s completely out of my control. I find rest and peace in the fact that the Lord knows the exact minute you will be born. He already knows every hair on your head. He knows every detail and what I want you know is not only how much I love you, but how much your heavenly father loves you too.

I will wait for you my sweet babies! I will wait as long as I have to, because you are worth it. You are loved. You are cherished. You are thought about. May you never forget that each of you are miracles. You are not only an answer to mommy and daddy’s thousands and thousands of prayers, but to so many others prayers too.

I love you to the moon and back! – Mommy

    This prayer has got me sobbing; not sad tears but happy tears knowing that our Heavenly Father will give us our babies in due season. My heart is with you and your husband and we will all continue to pray for those babies. God bless you dear. ??????

    This is SOOO SWEET! I love it so much! I feel I have written a similar letter, awhile back. I used to sing worship music over my babies, and tell them how much I love them and can’t wait to meet them. Thank you for the reminder to continue doing this. You are in my thoughts and prayers today! May God’s overwhelming love envelope you today and everyday and give you peace!

    Oh sweet friend – this made me teary eyed.
    Yes – this baby is being prayed for from so many people that will never hold that precious one in our arms … but our prayers together are covering you all!

    This is beautiful… that you have so much love for your future babies. Let me just say, that as a mother to 3 babes, I’ve been struggling in my place as a mother, wife and supporter. I have moments of weakness when I have no clue as to what I’m doing… I feel lost at times. I know that all my love for my babes is the best thing I can do and my children are the center of my world, but I need to read letters like this from time to time to put me back in my place & to remind me of how lucky and blessed I am; even when motherhood kicks my butt. Thank you for sharing.

    Call me crazy, but as soon as I read the part about you cleaning out your babies’ room, I got up and went back to work on our baby’s room. I have been ripping off old wallpaper and it’s a long process. But every time I work in it, I feel like I am doing something tangible to bring our baby closer to home. I feel closer to our baby somehow, like it’s more real. Thanks for motivating me to keep going.

    Tears. I feel like you took the words right out of mouth. Or rather put the words to what I felt like I had been wanting to say. Thank you for this.

    This is a beautiful prayer. It reminded me so much of myself several years ago. We waited through the adoption process 3 years before we got to bring our little boy home from China. He is amazing. I cried and prayed so many times during the wait and even before. Now he is also the big brother to 2 amazing sisters. We would love one more little one, but the wait is always hardest for the first. Prayers for your precious family that will one day grow!

    I’ve directed quite a few of my girfriends who are unable to have babies at this time to this site. They’ve been so encouraged at how transparent you are. I believe some felt as if they were the only ones and because it’s not a subject frequently brought up, they felt alone. Thank you for your ministry!!!

    Such a precious and heart-wrenched letter, dear friend! One day, by faith, you will read this letter to those amazing babies, and they, too, will see the awesome power of our God!! Keep believing! With God all things are possible. Thankful to be in the number who are praying with you. 🙂

    What a beautiful letter. Your children will be so blessed to know how BIG your love is. I’ve been reading about the wives of the patriarchs, and I never realized how much of a role prayer played into their stories: Abraham and Sarah prayed for Isaac, Isaac and Rebekah prayed for Jacob and Esau–even Rachel and Leah prayed for their precious sons. All of those women have a part in our redemption story!

    I have to admit, I teared up a bit in reading this. Your strength and fate in your future babies is admirable and your beautiful words even make it more so. Your future children are so lucky to have such a mother so thoughtful and so loving, and when you meet them and raise them, they’ll be all the more thankful for you as well.

    Thank you for sharing your personal journey with us on #SHINEbloghop. Everyone who reads this will be touched and will certainly be adding to your prayers.

    You clearly have a lot of love to give your future children. 🙂 I was in China last week, meeting orphans who need families. I would love for you to read about a special boy and consider whether he might be who you’ve been looking for. http://grtlyblesd.blogspot.com/2015/11/china-trip-meet-aury.html
