A Letter To The Daughter I May Never Have

This one is a must read. When someone says they don’t want children I used to be surprised but this letter shows that there is a story behind a No or a Maybe. When Amanda decides to have a child she will have all tools she needs for the journey.. Love it!!!!

My dearest daughter,

I’m writing this to you at age 27, at which point I still don’t know how to change a diaper.

My neighbors fight when they’re drunk and my friends have cancer and twelve-year-old students sell pot out of their lockers at school. I’m sorry darling, but this world is no place for a child.

I’m looking at a beautiful bouquet of flowers on the kitchen table that your potential daddy bought me three days ago and they’re wilted because I forgot to change the water. The sink is dirty and the recycling bin smells like sour milk and Coca-Cola. My home is no place for a child to grow.

But goodness it would be so gorgeous to meet you…
