in an hour


Last Wednesday we got a placement from fostercare; a four week old baby boy...who has many nicknames now but we mostly call him captain!

We are in love!! How could we not be look at that face. He is just so sweet.

Chris wrote the whole story-his version -on his blog.

Since than we have just been surrounded with love, service, calls from home, advice, gifts, food!! balloons, cute clothes and so many prayers. Which we appreciate more than anyone could know.

I sit and think about his situation sometimes and it amazes me that our heavenly father loves each of us so much. this child has been through a lot in 4 weeks...what was i doing 4 weeks ago? And that is how long he has been on the earth. I am so grateful for the love that I feel not just toward him but overall. I am grateful for the kindness of others and the lessons that I am learning and have yet to learn. I am grateful for guidance when I am scared and unsure.

I do not know the outcome of this situation and I am fearful of that. But my doubts and fears are overshadowed by love and faith.

For now we are just enjoying and taking in every minute with this sweet, sweet baby boy!
