I can’t wait to see you bloom.
I’ve seen your tiny face in my dreams….twice as a baby and once as a little girl. Your long, blonde hair was blowing in the wind as you swung back and forth on a swing set in our backyard.
Sometimes I’ll write letters to you. One day, I’ll give them to you when you’re old enough to understand just how loved and cherished you are.
You are my little girl, whom I have yet to meet.
Next month will mark two years that we have waited for you, and we are waiting still. I wish I could tell you that I have been a great Christian woman while I wait, but that would not be true. I’ve been quite angry at God for making me wait so long.
You’ll do that sometimes….get angry at God. But I’ve learned that He can take it. He can handle all our doubts and questions and hold us tight as we cry our bitter tears in the dark of night. And then He’ll go right on loving us and blessing us.
Please know when I tell you, you are dearly loved and dearly missed. Your dad and I talk often about you….what you’ll be like. What you’ll look like. What you’ll love. What you’ll accomplish.
We can’t wait to see you bloom. To see the woman you’ll grow up to be. The mighty princess God has called you to be.
For now, my dear Ellie, you just dance in my dreams. I hold dear to the promise that one fine day, you’ll dance in my arms.
