Open Letter to my Child's Father

Open Letter to my Child's Father

By: paige

Thank you for loving our child and putting her first already. 

When we found out about our daughter our lives were put on fast forward. What had started out as a fun night, turned into the rest of our lives and everyone around us, were watching our every move and it played out before their eyes. We were two well known families and it seemed we could not catch a break.

I'm sorry, for all the nights I spent scorning at you for everything you did right, but I saw as not right. I'm sorry I did not notice how much you cared for our little girl already. I'm sorry you had to take the blame for everything that has went wrong in my life. Yes, you would get angry with me, but you always forgave me and for that I'm very thankful. We both have said things we didn't mean, out of spite. But, you always reminded me it wasn't about us or my feelings, it was about our daughter. 

Thank you, for always being willing to help me when it comes to our daughter. Whether it's helping buy what I can't afford alone, or when it came to picking out her name. Thank you for letting me name her Caroline Paige and always supporting my decisions for her. Thank you for trying you're hardest to be involved even when I pushed you out. Thank you for never giving up on her when many had hoped you would. 

The reality is I could never thank you enough for giving me the most precious gift of all. I know the day we meet her will be the best day of our lives. I don't know where this road will take me or you or Caroline but I do know as long as she has me as her mother and you as her father she's a pretty lucky kid. I know we will both have families one day but at the end of the day she will always know where she came from. I know there will be many more disagreements and many nights we dislike each other but im thankful for you. Thank you for making me realize it's not about me, it's about our child. Thank you for making me a better mother already.
