Dear, Mom

To the Editor:

Mom, I want to thank you for the months you carried me in your womb.

During that time, I dreamt about all of the firsts we would experience:

First time that our eyes locked on each other.

First birthday.

First Mother’s Day.

First step.

First word.

First Christmas morning.

First Easter egg hunt.

First visit from the Tooth Fairy.

First ice cream cone we share.

First time I told you, “I love you.”

First time I counted to 10 without a mistake.

First time I sang the ABC song correctly by myself.

First time I learned to ride a two-wheeler.

First day of school.

First recital at school.

First graduation.

First time you let me drive alone.

First time you met my fiancé.

First dance at my wedding.

First baby for me, and your first grandchild.

First time I was able to take care of you.

Mom, all those firsts we dreamt about are now just a dream after you decided to have the abortion. However, Mom, there is still one first that I will be able to deliver. When we see each other in heaven, I am saving the first hug for you. Your baby.
