Prayer for Baby: Dear Baby Girl, feeling you move and kick is one of life's greatest pleasures and gifts! It reminds me that you are growing every day, and for that we are grateful. I pray you grow stronger every single day, getting bigger as you should. As we await the results of some pretty important tests, we are anxious but strive not to be afraid for we know God has a big plan for your life! He knew exactly what he was doing when he created you. We love you so much, sweet one!
