Finally, I’ve found the perfect book for me – Love, Mommy by Judith Siblin- Librach. This book is the most heartfelt book that I have read in a long time. I enjoyed every page so much that I could hardly put the book down. I can relate with the author, because we are on the same boat, we are both a child of divorce. This is why I have been so motivated to give my child the attention, close, happy, deeply safe and loving family I never had.
Author Judy Siblin-Librach are encouraging all of us to write a letter to our babies. She encourages mothers, fathers, grandparents, and other relatives and friends to join in and try to rebuild those early years for their children. It’s not important if you’re not good in writing, because there is only one person your children want to hear from: you, their mommy, or daddy and not some Shakesperian genius. Remember that love letters are always cherished.
Here’s my love letter for Cyler:
The day you we’re born was the happiest moment of my life. I can still remember the day when I was pregnant with you, you always moved your whole body as if you are dancing on my belly. That’s one of a kind experienced for me. Oh, I can still remember the day you we’re born, I cry so hard because I was so happy. I know every pain is worth it, because I knew that at the end of it all, I’d have the greatest thing on earth, which of course, was you. Cyler, you didn’t cry when you we’re born and you’re the most quiet baby in the nursery room. It is the moment I will cherish forever. I can’t believe that miracle is happening to me. For me, you are heavent sent from above, you are miracle. You totally change my life completely, and you made my life more meaningful. Cyler, I just wanna say thank you for teaching us how to love unconditionally. You don’t have to do anything but just be, you are perfect just the way you are. Mommy and Daddy will always be here for you and will do anything for you. May you grow in love and with God.
I love you more than you’ll ever know.
And when I struggle intensely with putting all these wonderful feelings into words, one thing became clear: I wanted my son to know how I felt about him and this was a way to begin expressing that love.
Chronicling the precious memories of your child is priceless, because you are giving them back their memory that they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.
