Dear Abigail,

We planned our life around you before you were even born, but nothing prepared us for the love we felt when we first saw you. As you grow through life, we promise to always love you, no matter what the circumstance. We promise to always try our hardest to do the best for you and to be the parents that God created us to be. What we lack in experience we make up for with love.

Today we are dedicating your life to God in front of our Church Family. The people that surround you now will help us guide you as you grow older. We promise to raise you up to know and love the Lord and encourage you to find the purpose and plan that He has for you. We promise to show you more than just tradition but a relationship with the Lord. We can’t wait for the day when you will have the ability to choose to know God.

We pray that when the time comes for you to live your own life, independent of your parents, we’ll be able to let you go, knowing that we did the best job we could. We pray that the Lord will help us to give you both roots and wings. You are our good and perfect gift from above.

We love you Abigail!
