Well, Sweet One, we are just days away from seeing your precious face. Even though we’ve welcomed two boys before you, I still cannot imagine how I will feel when I finally get to hold YOU on the outside! I simply cannot wait to share that first of many precious moments with you and to begin getting to know you better.
You’ve already shown me that you are such a strong boy. I don’t remember either of your brothers pushing me or kicking me quite so hard or so frequently! It’s just as well, because you will need to come out fighting. This is a superhero family, and they will be ready to “fight” with you at the earliest opportunity! More importantly, this helps confirm to me that you will grow into a strong, brave, and resolute man. Of course, that makes total sense when considering that the name God gave you — Dillon Kyler — means “faithful little warrior.” Wow! What an incredible privilege to get to be YOUR mom!
The Lord also gave me a special verse just for you. I expected it to have the word “faithful” in it, but it doesn’t. Instead, it powerfully illustrates exactly what it means to be faithful:
He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the LORD require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly with your God?
— Micah 6:8
What better prayer could I have for you, sweet little man? This is God’s heart for you, and mine as well.
I love you SO much! See you so, so soon.
