To my beautiful brown children:
I love you.
From the moment I saw the two pink lines, I have loved you. Watching you grow, has given joy. Protecting you, has given me purpose. You are my world. I want the world for you and your children and your children’s children.
My prayer, my wish, my hope is that this world sustains itself long enough for you to fulfill your dreams and desires. I am sorry for the people who judge you based on the color of your skin. I am sorry for the people who mistreat you because of your background and ethnicity.
I know you are wonderfully made. I know you are intelligent. I know you have a purpose. I believe in you.
Don’t ever forget that your mommy and daddy are always in your corner…no matter us near or far or gone forever from this earth.
You are our beautiful brown children. We love you.
