My heart it touched. My heart is swollen with love and emotion. My niece, Sarah, just asked me to be her unborn child’s Godmother and there are no words that can truly express the honor I feel to be even considered. My niece for the last ten years or so been more like a friend to me. More like a sister. In our adult years (she’s very close to my age) we have found a closeness that is indescribable. I have no words for how much love I have for her. I know that love will spill over to her child.
As I am now reaching 31 years old, I realize that having children of my own may not ever happen for me. It’s not the path I envisioned for myself years ago, but it’s one that I have accepted. I understand there is no control that I hold over my life, my journey, my story. I know in my heart that I would be a very loving mother. To know that someone else sees this inside of me, while part of my struggle in my life is feeling that a past significant other did not see this in me, is the greatest compliment. To Sarah, I thank you for giving me a gift of love and honor. To unborn baby – I will love you forever.
