My Dear Sweet Kayleigh,
On Monday I stumbled upon a new song by Taylor Swift called Ronan. I should have known better than to listen to it while at work after reading it was about a 4 year old boy that died from cancer. But, I listened anyway. And then I Google'd little Ronan to follow his story on a blog hosted by his mom. I read about his life, his diagnosis, his fight, and eventually his loss to cancer. And I cried.
A year ago I am sure I would have felt sadden reading his story. But now that you are here, I find that I can relate even more. I think about you and what a blessing you are to me and your daddy. And now that you are here, I know that I can't imagine my life nor my future without you in it. Even though I have no idea what the future holds for you, for us, for our family, I know I pray and hope that it's only the best possible.
After reading about Ronan I came home on Monday and I hugged you, I kissed you, I hugged you, and I kissed you again. And yesterday I did the same thing. And when I get home today, and tomorrow, and the day after, and for as long as I can, I am going to kiss you and hug you and simply love and appreciate you. You are the best thing to ever happen to me, and I am going to make sure you know it every day of your life.
I love you baby girl,
