Dear sweet baby girl cinco:
In just seven days from now
Your voice will proclaim your arrival
That sweet little cry, an exclamation:
“I am here, I am here!”
And Daddy and I will hear
(and likely relish in the strength).
You, our new princess, long awaited – –
God’s bridge between two families permanent,
Connecting “his” and “mine” with “ours.”
In the sleepy silence likely following,
we’ll whisper our prayers of thanksgiving;
proclaim your name to the world;
and call you into outstretched arms
that long to hold you close.
