Dear Ethan, when you were born, you were perfect from the first second. I have tried my hardest to be a good mom to you. I am now counting on you to be a good big brother. Be strong in all things, and protect those around you from bad things. Always have love and compassion in your heart. See the good in others.
Dear Axel, we were so excited to have you join our family. Love your big brother and follow his good example. Don't feel hidden in his shadows, be yourself and aim high for your dreams. Use your intelligence and calming voice to be a peacemaker. Remember we are a family, a team, we stick together through everything. Always be honest.
You two are brothers, how lucky you are to have each other. Be friends. Be kind. Be the kids others look up to, because you are good kids. Be the first to volunteer. And the one who extends a handshake.
Still so young, yet we are already so proud to be your parents. We love you. x
