"I prayed for you.

But not a proper, timid prayer.

A pleading with my face to the floor through swollen eyes kind of prayer.⁣⁣

A prayer I screamed, and a prayer I cursed while your brothers and sisters fell through me.⁣⁣

Yes child, you may never know how hard I prayed for you.⁣⁣

But I prayed deep and I prayed raw.⁣⁣

And here you are.⁣⁣

My baby.”⁣⁣
