Bride Broke Down To Tears After Receiving This ULTIMATE Gift from Her Mom

By  | 6 years ago

For a lot of people, wedding means union of two different hearts and soul.

But for many parents, it’s letting go of their most beloved person.

On her wedding day, the 20-year old bride, Brook, received an ultimate gift from her mother. It’s a gift that Sherry Blackledge had kept for 20 long years.

It’s a gift that is full of motherly love and emotions.

When Brooke was still few months old, Sherry wrote a letter for her daughter. The letter contains words  describing how much she loves her.

Sherry then hold on to that letter for 20 long years and decided to give it when the right time comes for her – Brook’s wedding.

Mom Saves Letter over 20 Years for Daughter's Wedding Gift

To preserve the original letter, Sherry even went to a local print maker and had them convert the letter to a patch that could be sewn into Brooke’s wedding dress.

Here are the original words or text that Sherry wrote for Brooke:

December 15, 1994

Our Dear Little Baby Brooke,

As I write this you are sleeping soundly in your baby bed.

You are 18 months old.We just want you to know how very much love and happiness you have brought to us.

You have made us a truly great family. A little precious baby girl to me and Daddy and a baby sister to Brian.

Before me and Daddy were married we always said we wanted a little boy and a little girl.

When we were dating, we said if we had a little girl she would be a little Brooke.

You are our little Baby Brooke.

Brooke, we just want you to know that you are very special to us and that God picked you extra special and he sent you to Mommy, Daddy and Brian.

We love you

Mommy and Daddy
