A man is what he thinks about all day long.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our daughter knows us. She has special gestures, expressions, and sounds for each one of us. When I come home from work, she leans into me and smiles. Each time this happens, I realize that I am living in forever.
What lies behind you
and what lies in front of you,
pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
These days are incredible. Watching these three gives me hope without limit, and love without boundary. We did not chose any of these children. Caleb was born to us, Aleksandra was chosen for us by an official, and Sterling was matched with us based on our dossier information by a beaurocracy. When we watch them together... Kellie and I see the provision of God. These three are fully ours. These three are brothers and sisters. I am blessed to live in a house of miracles.
|My favorite little feet rockin some tiny Toms. ~ Kellie|
When we reach out to a child... we save ourselves.
But God doesn't call us to be comfortable.
He calls us to trust Him so completely
that we are unafraid to put ourselves in situations
where we will be in trouble if He doesn't come through.
Francis Chan, Crazy Love
