dear titus v.1

Dear Titus,

Hi. I'm your Mom. We haven't met yet, but someday I'll kiss your cheeks way too much and will probably refer to you as my favorite boy. I tell your older brother, Gunner, that he's my favorite boy all the time, but you two can share the title once you're home.  

 
When I was pregnant with your brother I used to write him letters all of the time. I want to do the same for you. Our bond is different since you aren't growing in my stomach, but it doesn't make it any less real. I hope you always know that.

Honestly, I'm sorry I haven't written to you any sooner. I've been chronicling our adoption journey, but it's taken far longer than we'd originally planned to "meet" you...it's taken a lot longer to see your face, even if just in a picture. But I know you're out there, I know you've been chosen for our family. 

I can't wait to see you. 
I can't wait to meet you.
I can't wait to visit your home land.

I can't wait to kiss your cheeks and smell your skin.
I can't wait till you're home for Saturday donuts and Spaghetti Monday.
I can't wait till my every day includes you.

We love you, sweet boy.
