Zachary Scott Elliott

Dear Zachary Scott,

We've waited so long for you to join us in this world. You gave your mama many aches and pains with your kicking, stretching and just being a little booger. You cried wolf to us many times with many trips to the hospital. Finally, your brave mama decided to let the doctors take you out of her tummy.



You were worth the wait and I felt honored to be able to cut the cord. You came into this world, a beautiful healthy baby boy-yes, I said beautiful. You can yell at me later. You looked at me and that's when I knew I was hooked.



I saw your mama in you and was reminded of when she was a baby and how happy I was to have her. Now, I am happy to have you as a grandson. When I go home from visiting you in the hospital, I can't wait to come back to see you and your mama and hold you tight.


I am so curious to what kind of relationship we will have. I look forward to conversations with you when you can talk and what your dreams in life are. You are my little Zach and I will love you no matter if you want to wear pink or spike your hair or even if you love spiders-well, maybe.

I look forward to when you come home and even with the sleepless nights to come and even when your mama comes to me crying, saying that she can't do it. I will help your mama to be the best mama to you because you deserve it.
I know you will be a great son to your mama and you will protect her and make her laugh when she is sad. You and your mama will be a great team, with trips to the park and zoo and lots of laughter together. You are a Christmas present come early and the best gift your mama ever received.
So, welcome to the world, little guy. I love you and miss you and can't wait to come hold you again.
Love,
Nana
