On the eve of her sentencing that could set her free for the first time in nearly three years, a look back at Casey Anthony's jailhouse letters show that the 25-year-old may have more children upon her release.

"I had a dream not too long ago that I was pregnant," wrote Casey Anthony in one of more than 50 letters she sent to fellow inmate Robyn Adams between 2008 and 2009 when the two were housed in the Orlando County Jail in Florida.

"It was like having Cays all over again," she wrote, referring to her dead daughter, Caylee. "I've thought about adopting, which even sounds weird to me saying it, but there are so many children that deserve to be loved."

The letters were released in April 2010 by prosecutors preparing for Casey Anthony's trial. In more than 250 handwritten pages, Casey Anthony discusses life behind bars, what she misses most about her old life and what she hopes to do when she's released.

Casey Anthony, 25, was found not guilty Tuesday of murdering her daughter Caylee and could be released as early as Thursday depending on her sentencing on four guilty counts of giving false information to law enforcement.

In one undated letter among the document dump, Anthony writes to Adams, "Let's make a deal ? let's get pregnant together ? if it's really possible to plan it."

Some of the letters may also provide a glimpse into what Casey Anthony may do with the money some speculate she could make from a book deal or a movie deal.

Casey Anthony Wants to Have More Children

"No matter how much money I have someday, all I want to do is live comfortably, not worrying about bills, food or even a few clothes," wrote Casey Anthony. "Everything in moderation and modesty."

In one letter she refers to a book she has dreams of writing, describing it as a "partial memoir/comedy/relationship advice book for those not in the know."

"It's a way to settle many rumors and to share my insight about love, life and most important - God," she wrote. "Who knows."

Casey Anthony also makes a veiled reference to starting her own business, though she never specifies what kind, writing to Adams, "When are we going to sit on the beach, drinking cocktails and planning our future business?"

She even expresses a desire to give money to charity.

"I want to donate money to charities ? leukemia research, breast cancer, cervical cancer," she wrote.

Many of the letters focus on products Casey Anthony writes she misses. She would often admit how "vain" it makes her look to crave things as trivial as a tweezer to pluck her eyebrows or a hair dryer to do her hair.

"I can't wait to get my teeth whitened and to use my regular toothbrush/toothpaste/shampoo, conditioner," she wrote. "I still have no desire to wear heels unless the occasion calls for it. but converse, boots and REAL flipflops?Ah! And hats, regular ball caps."

"Sunglasses. Underwear, that fits!" she continues, "Is that vain? Should I not look forward to these things?"

Also on Casey Anthony's jailhouse wish list are manicures and pedicures which in one letter she refers to as being just "around the corner."

"Color on my toesies and acrylic nails -- yes please," she wrote. "I want to embrace the many joys of being a lady."

"And girl," she wrote to Adams, "I could use a day at Target myself. Just to walk around the store, to be a part of society. I want to go grocery shopping."

And for those who wonder how Casey Anthony will re-enter society after a trial that gripped the nation, even she may have thought about the difficulty of living a normal life.

"If you could change your name to any name, what would it be?" she wrote in one of her earlier letters. "I've been thinking about that a lot lately."

"Ideas?many ideas."
