Dear Daughter

To my Gorgeous Big Girl,

Before you become a big sister I want you to know how much I love you and how much richness you have bought to my life.

Since your presence in the world in my tummy you have been a treasure to us.  First as a secret which Dad and I did not want to share, then as a taonga to all who knew you were on your way.

Before you became a part of Mummy's life I did not realise how much you would teach me.  From you I learnt to listen better, be calm, relinquish control and let you lead and grow as you needed to.

Daddy and I grow to love you more and more each day.  You have a huge heart, an amazing brain and caring nature.  Your zest for life is infectious and we marvel at all that you observe and the connections about life that you make.

You have been very in tune with Mummy's growing tummy and the soon to arrive baby we will all love together.  To "Rainbow Chocolate" you will be an awesome big sister.  Becoming a big sister is exciting and you will always be a big sister.  Too, you will always be Kaea, our big girl.  You will always be you and we want you to be who you are, always.  As a big sister you will be amazing - as a big sister myself I know what a privilege it is and sometimes what a challenge it can be.  I think if you listen, love and empower then you are doing great.

Thank you for being such a supportive, caring and beautiful part of my life.

Love you so much and always will KB,

from your Mumma xx


  1. That is so lovely! I know I would love to read something like that written by my mum x

  2. Naaawww... love you big sister! Bet you didn't write or read that without crying though!!! Can't wait to see you next week, and KB

  3. Aaww! I love this! I wish I had've wrote my daughter a letter like this before her brother was born but I guess it's never too late!
    My daughters birthday is 24th June, this year she turned four and all she wanted was her baby brother for her birthday! Well, on the 19th June he arrived, one week early, and she was right there to welcome him to our family. Blessed!

  4. Thanks Mumma of 2, I would love to email you a personal thanks but can't find your details too!
