Thank You Lord  for………….

My oldest sons recent ‘birth’day

A phone call that changed our life

The days I quickly prepared for him

The car ride to go pick him up

My first glimpse of him

The first time I reached out for him

The first time I held him in my arms

The feel of his little face against my chest and the soft movement I saw and felt as he breathed in and out

His brown skin so different from mine yet oh so beautiful

The first time he looked at me

The first time that I knew that he knew who I was

The first time he squeezed my finger

Th first time he smiled

The first time I heard him laugh

All of his first that I was there for

The fear of losing him that made me hold him tighter and cling to YOU more

The lifetime of waiting that led me to him

The fear, anxiety,heartache, wonder, excitement, joy, love, love and love  I have felt while You worked everything out

The day that God ordained from the beginning, the day the papers were signed, the day it was a done deal, now it wasn’t just in my heart, now it was all legal, he was mine, I was his…………forever. The joy and peace this day brought to my husband, my whole family and to me!!

For everyday since that I have had with him that YOU have allowed, that you have given!!

For our past, present and future 

That HE is yours, that He believes
