Dear Anna Jiang Qian and Abigail Mei,
I don’t know how it can; but it does. Just the thought inside my head as I type ‘letters to my daughters’ takes my breath away.
How happy I am to be your mama.
You are such big girls now. I’m not quite sure how it happened; ten and six. You were just babies on my hips. I carried you everywhere and all the time. Little Abigail I can still pick you up but you and your big sister are showing me the way now. It’s your personalities shining through. I’m learning each day who you are and a little bit more of what you’ll become. Each day you give me a little glimpse into the future but you still hold my hand. Oh and your hands still feel little in mine.
And you are sweet. Sweet to me, sweet to your daddy, sweet to your grandparents, and sweet to each other.
You are the best sisters. I know you will be life long best friends. You were chosen, put together for a special purpose in life. Although the plan is yet to fully unfold I know that walking in the path today and tomorrow will lead you there.
You have each other and forever love from daddy and I.
We cherish you. We love you. We adore you.
Love, mommy and daddy
