A letter for him

Dear baby boy.....

We do not know you yet.
Except for in our hearts.
We have never seen you.
We don't know how tall you are.
What makes you cry.
Or what makes you laugh.

But our love for you is growing.
Our fears for you are as real as our fears for your brother & sisters.

Our God is our defender.
And sweet child He loves you more than you can imagine.

I don't know when or where we will find each other.
But know that even though I have no idea what you look like, your name or your back ground that

YOU are chosen. YOU are loved. YOU have purpose.

We love you dearly.
And we can't wait for what God has in store.

- - - - - - - - 
Sometimes it's scary.
Knowing somewhere our child is.
Yet not knowing anything.
Sometimes when God gives our hearts a special mission
It's HARD. 
Hard in the waiting.
Hard in the praying.
But you better believe I pour out my heart for this boy.
And surprisingly enough his parents too.

Some days I have to remind myself that God is in control.
His plans far outweigh mine.
And He has all of us in the palm of His hand.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future
~Jeremiah 29:11
