to our next baby...

(pictures shown are out-takes from our adoption profile photoshoot this past Spring)

Sweet Little One,

Wherever you are tonight, I want you to know you are already loved
far more than you'll ever know.
We can't stop thinking about you
and wondering about you.
Though we don't yet have a clue
when or where you'll come from,
we can't WAIT to meet you.

I have no leads to you right now.
All is quiet.
But we eagerly wait and hope.
And pray each night that God will bring you to us soon.
It could be next month.  It could be next year.

I hope you're ready for this, because you've got some silly gals
who are ready to provide you with YEARS of entertainment.
You just wait.

And you'll have a big sister that will protect you and cherish you like no other.

You'll have a Daddy who'll do anything (and I mean anything) for you, no matter what it costs him.  (ouch!  His neck was killing him...)

You'll be living in a house full of broken, messed-up sinners
who need Jesus every hour of our lives.

But we've received an amazing store of Grace.

And it's out of that Grace,
we love.
And forgive.
And love some more.

We pray for your birthmommy even now.
Caroline prays she will pick us
at just the right time.
When it's God's special plan. (again!)
We can't wait to adopt you into our family
and give you all the love
your birthmommy wants you to have.

You should know that in our family, there are no strangers.
Everyone is made in His image.
Black and white, rich and poor.
People are in our life and in our home alot,
and we want to love them
with the same strong love
that Jesus gives so freely to us.

Sweet one, we know there will be challenges along the way.
Challenges and boo-boos that
require more than a bandaid to heal.
We've walked this road before,
and you can trust
we will do everything
in our power to fight for you.

Of that you can be sure.

So until that amazing day when we finally meet you face to face, know that we love you.
And you just get yourself ready to join this crazy clan.  ;)

Mommy, Daddy, and CC
