I have been blessed with the great parents on Earth. Like Nephi says, "Having been born of goodly parents"...I, too, was born of goodly parents. They worked so hard to make sure that I had a better childhood than they did. They always showed me unconditional love while teaching me the values that have shaped me into the man I am today. I owe so much to them and I will forever be indebted to them for all they have done and continue to do for me. Bringing you into this world will help pay a little of that debt because Nani and Papi LOVE their grandkids. You will be blessed, like me, to have them in your life.
With all the blessings that Heavenly Father has bestowed upon me, there is one that is greater than any of them. Heavenly Father sent me an angel that you will call "Mommy". He sent me one of his most prized daughters to be my wife and the mother of my child (YOU!). What an amazing blessing it is to have her as my wife. And, what an amazing blessing, it will be to have you as my child! I want you to know just how much I love your mommy. She is very special to me.
Your mommy saved my life. She was there for me through thick and thin. You and her are the reason that I am here today. Heavenly Father had a greater calling for me than I could have EVER imagined. He called on my to be the husband to an angel and he also decided to let me be the father to one of his precious children. I don't know how I got so blessed, and I never feel like I deserve it...but, he knows what he is doing...so, I will just go with it.
Your mommy is a beautiful woman. She is a rare treasure in this world. There is a song that reminds me of your mommy that says "she is an angel sent from above" and I know that she was. I know that Heavenly Father knew that I needed her in my life. She makes me a better person. She makes my heart skip a beat. She makes me smile. She makes my life wonderful. She makes me happy. She makes me feel alive. And, most of all, she makes me feel loved. I love her with all my heart and soul. She owns my heart, much like you do. She is a gorgeous angel that I am blessed to call my wife. One day, you will either grow up to be like her or want to marry a woman like her. She is truly "One Of A Kind".
Soon...it will come quicker than we realize...you will be here and I will be able to hold you and kiss your little head. I cannot wait for that day, but for now, I will give your mommy's tummy a kiss for you!
I hope that we can be as good of parents to you as my parents have been to me. If there is one thing that my dad has taught me, it is to treat my wife and the mother of my child, the love of my life, with the utmost love and respect. She deserves the world and I strive everyday to give it to her. I love her very much and I need you to know how special she is to me. She will be as special to you as she is to me. Blessings like her do not come around often, so when they do, you hold them tight, cherish them, and never let them go. I love her and I love you!
