June 7th, 2015

Dear Maya,

I can't believe it has already been three whole years since we had you. I remember, and will always remember, the exact moment we first met you. Daddy and I cried so much together, as we saw your face for the first time. That together, we had somehow created the most amazing being - you...

You came out of me, wide awake, as if you already knew it all.

In many ways, these three years have gone by so fast. I have watched you grow from a little baby to an adventurous, confident girl. I have learned more by being your mother than I have ever learned doing anything else. Getting to know you and seeing your personality develop has been the greatest blessing to me. For some reason, God paired us together and sent you to me, and me to you. More than anything, I feel grateful that God picked me to be your mother.

Before we had you, Daddy and I were so worried that we wouldn't be good parents. That we would take something precious and just fumble and be clumsy and mess it up somehow. We aren't perfect people, and we aren't perfect together, but we try our best and we hope that our deep love for each other and our family shines through. Raising a child seemed like such a huge responsibility, but we didn't realize that in reality, you'd help raise us.

Knowing you, I know you're going to be okay no matter what and I don't worry for you at all. I know that when you fall, you will pick yourself right back up. I love you unconditionally, and without a single ounce of worry. You came into this world with such a fast fury, just like a fireball that will take this whole planet by storm. You have already made your mark on the world, through everyone you meet. 

I am honored to be your mother. I love you, more than words can ever say...

    On another note, nice pic - what a way to contrast the joy and vitality of childhood with the indifferent, potbellied, couldn't-crack-a-smile-if-they-wanted-to lethargy of the adults in the background haha
