I was looking through old photos and decided to write a letter to my baby self. For reference, I was born with limb differences on my right hand and both feet….
Dear Baby Kari,
Welcome to the world, little one.
I know you arrived looking differently than expected and that is causing worry among your loved ones.
If you could only tell them, little one, how perfect you are. Your hand is perfect. Your feet are perfect. You are a perfect Divine creation.
You are truly a miracle.
You have a strength inside of you that will help you persevere throughout your life.
You have such a loving heart. You are pure loving energy. You embody love.
By the way you live your life, you will teach others to love.
You will redefine what it means to be beautiful. You will give others a safe space to be themselves.
You will touch people on a deep soul level and change so many lives.
Your sensitivity is your strength. Your spirit will radiate and shine. You will make the world a brighter, more beautiful place.
You are needed, and you will light the way for others. Your words will change the world.
You are a blessing and a gift to the world.
And, on the days that are hard, know you are held…always.
You are so special, little one, and your life will be amazing.
I love you so very much, and I’m so glad you were born.
Your Future Self
