Dearest Christian–

I want you to know that my love for you has NOT changed even though your sister, Olivia, is now a part of our lives!  I know you were mad at me for leaving you to go to the hospital, but I came back.  I love you, even if (for now) I can’t play with you like I used to because of the wounds on my body.  They will heal and then we’ll be able to play like we did before.  I love you, even if I have to give your sister more of my attention right now because she can’t do things for herself yet.  The day will come when the two of you will be able to play together.  I’m guessing that day will come faster than either of us can imagine.  You are a wonderful son, Christian, and my love for you will never change!

All my love,  Mommy
