Our little boy

I cannot even begin to express the love I have for our little boy, and I am talking about our youngest, the one we haven't even met yet. We are starting our home study soon and the age range of our little boy means that he is likely already in the baby home in Uganda. Tonight at small group, while we were singing, I closed my eyes and for the first time I saw a little baby boy and my heart just flooded with love for this child. I just started praying for him while we were singing. "Please God, watch over my baby. Keep him safe, keep him wealthy, protect him God. Send him my love." My heart aches to hold him and bring him home.
My baby is somewhere in that little spec you see in this picture.... Makes me think of "Hortons hears a Who", our son loves that movie... I see that spec of light and I just know he is out there somewhere. I can feel him and I love him with all my heart already.
God is so good!!

Trusting God in this time



Audio Adrenaline Kings & Queens

Here is a song I recently heard and I wanted to share it. <3

Audio Adrenaline 
Kings & Queens


Little hands, shoeless feet
Lonely eyes looking back at me
Will we leave behind the innocent too brief
On their own, on the run 
When their lives have only begun
These could be our daughters and our sons
And just like a drum I can hear their hearts beating
I know my God won't let them be defeated
Every child has a dream to belong and be loved

(Chorus)
Boys become kings, girls will be queens
Wrapped in Your majesty
When we love, when we love the least of these
Then they will be brave and free
Shout Your name in victory
When we love, when we love the least of these
When we love the least of these

Break our hearts once again
Help us to remember when
We were only children hoping for a friend
Won't you look around 
These are the lives that the world has forgotten
Waiting for doors of our hearts and our homes to open

Chorus

If not us, who will be like Jesus
To the least of these
If not us tell me who will be like Jesus
Like Jesus to the least of these

Boys become kings, girls will be queens
Wrapped in your majesty
When we love, when we love the least of these
Then they will be brave and free shout your name in victory
We will love we will love the least of these
We will love the least of these (Repeat)
