Platinum hair
Crystal blue eyes
Pink soft cheeks
Red full lips
Gentle and nurturing

Curly blonde hair
Piercing hazel eyes
Chubby round cheeks
Chipped front tooth
Strong willed and impressionable

You make me feel peace.  You give me hope.  You help me believe there is good.

Your dad and I promise to protect you while you are in our grasp.
We will keep you innocent and unaware of human evils as long as possible.
When that day of sadness comes, we will do our best to make you feel safe again.
We prepare for this day now because, unfortunately, it is inevitable.

My wish for you both is to learn from each tragedy.
To learn to respect life.
All life.

Please remember to be kind and be good, my amazing and beautiful sons.


  1. This is so beautiful, lovely wishes for your sons as well as wanting to protect, keep them innocent and make them feel safe. Wish we didn't have such horrible tragedies to protect them from.

    1. Thank you, Anna. I pray all of our sons never have to deal with such a tragedy.
