Every day we grow closer and closer to your arrival and with every passing day our hearts grow fonder of you. We feel your kicks and flips and we love you with a love we’ve never known before. I can only imagine when we meet you and finally hold you in our arms, oh how our hearts must burst into a thousand pieces. We will rejoice and celebrate the start of an amazing life. I can’t wait to rock you in my arms, kiss you over and over, see your eyes meet mine, hear your coos and cries. I long for the days of mommy and son dates, just us two, waiting for daddy to get home. I may complain over lack of sleep and just exhaustion, but it will never compromise the adoration I have for you. You are precious to us, not for anything you’ll do, but because God hand picked you to join our family. I feel this large bump as you stretch your back against my stomach, and I’m in awe that you’ve grown so much. And as I write this your dad is dancing around the living room to Jitter Bug and making me laugh. I hope you’re just like him. He is kind and generous and always making me laugh- being the bright spot in all my days. His love for me is so much. You’ll know what I’m talking about as soon as you meet him. I can just picture you two going to Home Depot and working on the latest project, kicking the soccer ball around or snuggling up on the couch together. Those are the days I live for.
Our prayer for you as you grow is that you would have a genuine relationship with God and that you would always know the depths of his love for you- Mightier than the waves of the sea is His love for you Psalm 93:4. As much as we love you and that love for you will always keep growing, our Lord who knit you together in your mothers womb, has so much adoration and unfailing love for you. Never lose sight of your Lord and Saviour who created the earth and everything in it and thought the world needed one of you, too! Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or troubled, the Lord your God is with you wherever you go Joshua 1:9. We cannot wait to meet you!
