To my Chepito Lindo,
I am writing you this letter to remind you first and foremost how much I love you. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without you. It would feel incomplete to say the least. You light up every day of my life and everyone who meets you feels the same. You have the power to change the world and I have seen it first hand.
When daddy and I found out that we were pregnant with you, we were so scared. Daddy lived in another country and I was still in school. I was so scared of what my friends would think of me and all of the people I would disappoint because daddy and I weren’t married yet. But from the very moment you were conceived you were loved, beyond anything else. I was scared the most to tell Grandma and Grandpa. When I did have the courage to tell them, Grandpa didn’t talk to me for 3 days. I couldn’t even look at him. But like I said earlier, you can change the world, one person at a time. Ever since Grandpa first saw you, you have become his best buddy. You always give the best smiles to Grandpa and he adores you more than you can imagine. Before you were even born, he installed a lock to his workshop door just to make sure you were “extra safe”.
You continue to amaze me every day with how much you want to learn and your immense curiosity. I pray that you never loose that incredible quality. You have a crazy addiction to all kinds of fruit, you can play basketball for hours and you think it is hilarious to splash mommy while you are taking a bath. You are one of kind Joseph. You make every day brighter and I feel beyond blessed to have been chosen to be your mother. I know there have been difficult times, but I would not trade you for one moment to have things differently. You are the love of my life. You are the love of Daddy’s life. Everyone who meets you falls in love with you. Never forget that.
Te amo mi amorcito lindo, hoy y siempre.
