To all the strong women I know.
And to all the mothers of the world.
Whether you've been blessed with your children or are still waiting for them to come home.
Although I don't know you yet, I feel you in my heart. There isn't a day that passes that I don't think about you. I wonder if you've been born yet. I worry about whether you're safe. I hope and pray that someone is taking care of you. It hurts that it's not me. I dream of the day when I can finally hold you in my arms. But until that day, I have to stay strong. And so do you. Even though you will be born to another, half a world away, you are my daughter and I am your mother. I have faith in the fact that this was the way it was meant to be. I am coming for you. No matter how long it takes me to get there. I promise.
Because I love you more than all the stars in the sky.
And I always will.
