We love you already

Dear future baby,

I know we haven’t met, but that’s okay, we love you already.

We love that you are going to be an answer to the endless prayers we been saying for a long time.

We love your birth Mother who will entrust you to be ours.

We love that you will be brought into a family with loving grandparents, and MANY aunts, uncles and cousins.

We love the newborn smell you’ll have for the first little while of your newborn life.

We love the sleepless nights we’ll have with you as you learn to sleep through the night.

We love the extra the bag of “just in case”  and “always be prepared” items we’ll carry around regularly just to make sure you are well taken care of.

We love that you will most likely be dressed better than we ever will because it’s way more fun to dress up babies than ourselves.

We love the accidental smiles that will eventually turn into real smiles

We love that our Instagram and Facebook posts will mainly consist of you and the genius baby you are as you successfully eat peas for the time or sit up on your own.

We love the “first time” moments we’ll be able to create with you.

We love that we get to be your parents.

We know that it may take some time to find you, but that’s okay.

We love you already.

See you soon.

Love, your parents

 

The Perfect Dad

Since deciding to adopt and starting the process to find the sweet baby to join our family, the more excited I get to see Hailame as a Dad.

Hailame was made to be a dad.

Besides the fact that I find him extremely attractive when holding babies, Hailame has been anxious and ready to start this new chapter in our life.

He is the Uncle adored by all of our nieces and nephews.  Since we’ve been married, the new name I’ve taken on is, “Hi Hannah, where’s Hyrum.” (not joking at all!)

When we are at our parents’ homes, you will most likely find him in the backyard or running around the house playing with the kids.

EVERYWHERE we go, he makes an instant connection to kids.  I don’t know how he does it, but he is a child whisperer and just knows how to connect with them.

At our home in St. George, neighborhood children know where he keeps his secret stash of goodies, and he is the biggest push over when it comes to giving treats away.

Hailame is a father figure to our older nephews teaching by example how to treat others and what it means to be a man.

He sets an example to our nieces on how every man should treat and respect women.

I’m so lucky to be his partner in this adventure, and I can’t wait to watch our own children fall in love with him the way the I and the rest of the children in our lives have!

love, hannah jane
