My future Ellen Rose, I only hope to shape a loving, endearing, and open-hearted daughter. I wish to guide you, to watch you excel, and for you to become a beacon in a world that is drifting apart; to be the needle and the thread that brings tides together.
You will hit the ground. You will make your mistakes and have your misgivings. Yet you will always love and be loved.
In this, I hope I may succeed.
