Dear Son

"My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be" (Psalm 139: 15,16).

Dear Son,
This week we received new pictures of your beautiful self.  It touched our hearts immensely to see you smiling!  However, it also made our hearts ache, as we long to bring you home and lavish you with love and to see your precious smile up close!  We pray for you every day.  We pray that God will send His angels to protect you and to give you lots of love.  We pray for your health and we especially pray that you would be able to come home soon.  We are longing to hold you in our arms.

Your brothers and sisters also can't wait to meet you.  Your sister keeps talking about sharing her room with you and how much fun that will be!  Your other sister has your pictures hanging in her room!  Your brothers and your sisters pray for you every night.  You have so much love here waiting to be given to you.  You keep growing in our hearts; we love you so much!  We also know that you have a heavenly Father that loves you so much too!  He has called you to be His child and we know that God's timing is perfect and that He has big plans for you!  We can't wait to see what those plans are, and we feel blessed beyond words that He chose you to be our son.

We couldn't resist buying you your first stuffy, a lion.  Did you know that your name means, "fierce, stronghold"?  You already have a fierce stronghold on our hearts and we can't wait to meet you and bring you home to your forever family!
