Dear future children,
You are not born, you are not even conceived yet; instead you are just glimmer in my eye and a thought in my mind and I have not met your dad yet. If one day I am blessed to have you, there are a few things I would like to say to you.
If one day you are a boy and you wish to play with dolls and trucks, that is fine by me, in fact count me in. There is nothing wrong with that. If one day you are a girl and wish to do the same thing, I will play tea parties with you and your transformers. When you have become a teen and you have started to figure out who you are attracted to and have a hard time telling me that you are gay or lesbian, I promise you that you can tell me this and I will love you no matter what. My lesson to you is love is love; it doesn’t matter if you are straight or gay, if you love someone with all of your heart then that is all that matters. This world is cruel, there will be others who will judge you, who will try to degrade you, who will harm you in anyway possible; just remember that you will have your dad and I by your side and will love you unconditionally. The only thing that matters in finding a partner besides being in love is compatibility, respect, passion, and finding someone who will push you to grow and become the amazing person you are meant to be.
Respect is a big thing that you will learn as you grow up. You will learn to respect us, your parents. You will learn to respect other family members and friends, you will learn to respect strangers. Most importantly, you will learn to respect yourself. Never judge another human being for their opinion, never judge another human being for what they believe in, and never judge a person for who they love. It is not your place to judge someone.
Life is about finding yourself and finding your personal legend. And I guarantee you that it will get rough and you might feel like you are lost, but you will always have friends and family there to help guide you. And remember you can always ask for guidance to whoever you may choose to worship whether it be God, nature, a Greek God or Goddess, Buddha , or if you follow the druid path of your ancestors. At all times there will be someone to help guide you.
Just remember that you will have the love and support of your parents, friends and other relatives who will always be by your side.
