Though the thought of this is a current impossibility due to medical circumstance, I can pray that God will grant me more children with my current husband. If this is possible, this is both my letter to them, as well as my current son.
I am Mommy. That’s all I really aspire to be, it’s all I have ever wanted to be. I’m just a normal woman from New York who easily lost her way from a hard childhood. Not bad, just hard when childhood really shouldn’t be hard. Childhood should be easy, and fun. They shouldn’t have to raise their siblings or be kept in their rooms.
Your Nana tells me Daddy and I will raise a Kingdom of God, and that’s what I intend to do. God is real, and you all will know him in time. That being said, I also intend to raise you as open mined individuals. Yes, you will know the Lord, but you will also know that some people are different. Some women like women, some men like men, some people don’t gender-identify. Some don’t believe their biologic gender is proper. Did God mess them up? No. He did want us to learn to accept everyone though. Always know, God doesn’t make mistakes.
Schooling is important. I will love you not matter what, this is true, however you will go to school. Whether this is actual school or homeschool is up to you. Daddy and I have both been teased and hated school, but Mommy finished and Daddy had to get his G.E.D. which was just a little harder. Whatever lets you finish, you can do. I don’t even care what branch you pick to go off of, whether finance, arts, or fine arts, that choice is yours.
College is a requirement as well. Not because a higher education will get you places, although it might, but because it will give you time to get used to it before you hit the real world. The real world can be cruel and harsh, and children should be eased into it. Not to mention, you can learn a whole lot from college, from how to deal with people, to how to do certain maths. You never know when you will need this information.
Is Mommy harsh, sort of, but only because I want the best for you children. It’s my job to not only leave a good world for you, but to raise you so you can take over this world. I don’t want to raise you to be LIKE me, or to be like Daddy. I want to raise you to be way, way better than we are or were. You deserve to have every opportunity open to you. Travel, learn languages, do what you need to do to be the best you that you can me.
