To Aleeyah Michelle Zayas, my perfect ray of sunshine.


I don’t know how everyone else would feel about me writing you this letter, but I know you would be sad if I didn’t. There is nothing I can say that would justify anything I have put you through. I’m sorry for being unavailable. I should have made more time. You’re worth it. You’re worth time, love, attention, and understanding, and don’t you ever let anyone else tell you otherwise or treat you any different. 

You’re so brilliant and full of potential. You have such a bright future ahead of you, and I know you’re going to do so much good in the world and you will make your Mommom proud. She was already so proud of you. I’m proud of you. Your mommy is proud of you. Everyone is. You’re doing so well, and you’re so mature. I’m so excited for where you’re going to end up going in life. <3

Your jokes are punny. You’re very sweet and dependable. You’re a great big sister, and a wonderful daughter, and a kick-ass neice. One day you’re going to go out into the world, and you’re going to succeed. No matter what you want to do, when you put your mind to it, you will absolutely do it well. There is NOTHING in this world that’s impossible. There is NOTHING you cannot do. You are strong. You are lovable. You are perfect. 

I love you very very much, with all my heart, to the moon and back.
