I absolutely adore you. I love using the word “adore” when speaking with my kids.
I will always be here for you. Whether your child is biological, adopted or in foster care – always let them know that they can count on you.
If you had a fan club, I’d be President. I’m always telling my girl’s that I’m their biggest fan. Whatever they do in life, I want them to know that I will be there to celebrate them.
You have greatness in you that will astound the world!!! Every person has greatness, destiny and purpose in them. Encourage your children to believe in theirs.
I believe in you. People rise and fall according to the expectations of those who matter to them. As a parent, you matter. Tell your kids that you believe in them.
I love you. The most important thing you can say every day is I love you.
Anything worth saying is worth repeating in different ways. I love you. I love you. I love you. You can never say it too much, to often or in too many ways.
You’re more special than you’ll ever know. Even more than ice cream. Now, we all know that if you’re more special than ice cream – you’re pretty special!!
Nothing you can ever do will make me love you less. My kids have done some pretty um… interesting… things – but regardless of their actions, behaviors or words – I will always love them unconditionally.
You aren’t like anyone else in the world!!! That makes you incredibly special! I want my kids to know that they don’t have to conform to anyone else, they are special, unique and created for a purpose.
I’m so glad that God brought you into my life!! Whether your kids came to you through birth or through foster care/adoption, God placed them there! Make sure they know that you celebrate that.
You are amazing!!! Sometimes, it’s just nice to hear someone say it.
You can do anything you set your mind to – chase your dreams. I want my kids to follow their dreams wherever they take them.
