Mom and Dad,
I wanted to tell you both that I am graduating with my master’s degree in special education this Thursday. I am finally done with this degree and soon it will be onto another chapter of life for me. My, how I am growing up right? I hope you are both proud of the woman I am becoming.
Mom, I maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout the whole program just for you. You were always so proud of my academic achievements. Jody gave me the necklace you got when you graduated with your degree from the same university. I am going to wear it on Thursday in honor of you. In a way, it will help me feel your presence there.
I know you both would be so proud of me. I can practically see your smiles and feel your tight hugs and kisses on my cheek as you embrace me saying that you are “so proud of your baby.” I would grin and say, “Stop calling me your baby. I am all grown up!” But, secretly, I would love it because your baby I will always be.
I will miss your actual presence at my graduation ceremony, but I know you will be watching from heaven. I love you and miss you both so much.
Love Always and Forever,
Your Baby Girl
