It was amazing and she has agreed to let me share it here.

Thanks Brenna!

 

 

A baby, a baby!
Your treasure and joy
She will fill up your house with clothes, diapers, and toys
There are things in your house that she’ll probably destroy
There are people who’ll ask “Had you wanted a boy?”
Have they ever had children?
Do they even know the joy a child brings when they say hello?
Or the sadness you feel whenever they go?
No
She will live for the times she can look at your faces
And soon she’ll discover there’s not better places
Than right in the arms of the family she loves
Surrounded by happiness, kisses, and hugs
