Dear Mckenna,

At such a young age, your unique and one of a kind personality began to show, and everyone who met you immediately fell in love with you. 

I promise to tell you YOUR entire story, when you are ready and old enough to understand. I want you to know how courageous, strong, and brave you were from the day you were born. You have gone through what most people will never have to go through in a lifetime. 

I promise to be your best friend, even on the days we may not get along. I promise to always be there for you, support you, and always listen to you. I promise to always be honest when you ask me questions. I promise to teach you everything I know, and to never repeat the same day twice. I promise to always make you smile, laugh, and show you how precious life is.

I will be your sounding board when bullies in school ask you uncomfortable questions. I will teach you to love and be proud of your scars. 

But most of all, I want you to know that when you were little, dad and I wished that it was us going through what you had to, instead of you.

I am amazed by you, and I want you to know that you are my hero. I will always look up to you and you will forever be my teacher and my guide in life. 

Since the day you came into my life, you have brought so much happiness, joy, beauty, special moments, to me; and for that I am forever so grateful for you. “I love you” will never be enough to express how much I appreciate you and care for you. You complete my life, and I am so blessed to have you as my daughter.

I can’t wait to spend every day together, make endless memories, have our own inside jokes, and be by your side to watch you do all your “first’s”! 

I will love you forever, plus one day.

Love always,

Your Mama ♥


This picture is one of my favourite moments together – you cuddled with me for almost an hour with no movement – all you wanted was your mama! ♥
