In letters to "Emily Rose," an expectant mother chronicles the nine months leading up to her daughter's birth. The journey begins with the word “pregnant” in late autumn and continues through three more seasons, two small towns, and many unforeseeable challenges. Through it all, those little kicks and flutters give her a warm sense of direction in a world that can be, at times, cold and unpredictable. By documenting her experiences, this mother hopes to preserve the precious memories, and make peace with her mistakes and the things she cannot change. And someday she will share this story with Emily Rose, when she, too, is faced with the challenge of becoming a woman and mother.     

This story was originally published on the parenting blog, (see External Link), in the summer of 2012. Ready for a new adventure, it became @Fairytale_Fabler’s icebreaker piece at the start of her Wattpad enterprise and it has since been listed on the 2014 Stories4Mom reading list. Soon after the “Little Peach” Mother’s Day update (2015), it became a Wattpad Featured Story. And like mother and child, their true story even has a story, one that began as a good idea (and a unique opportunity for self-reflection) and developed over the years into something stronger and wiser. Thank you for such overwhelming love and support.

Reminds me of when my wife and I were trying to have kids.  Trying to time things etc.  Voted for it.

Beautiful. I wish that I would have done this for all of my children!
                              I loved your bedroom scene. Seriously, I had to read it to my husband as it was so cute.

It's so sweet that she's writing a letter to a daughter not yet born.

A beautiful love letter, Alicia.  Love the line, 'I knew you were already there'.  And the homework to improve the odds :) Vtd
