Starting the Journey

Are you out there somewhere in your crib all alone
Staring at the ceiling or dreaming of a home
Does your little body quiver because your lonely and cold
Sleep tight my little one your story's yet to be told
We're praying and dreaming of the life you will lead
We pray that with God's help we can give you all that you need
We won't be perfect, we'll make a mistake or two
But one thing we promise is to always love you
We'll protect you and hug you and dry all your tears
We'll hold you and listen to all of your fears
Your mommy is sleeping right next to me tonight
She's dreaming about you and how your future is so bright
So sleep tight my little one and dry those tears too
We're praying and planning and coming soon for you

Jessica and I have started the journey toward adoption. We ask for your prayers. We know this will be a time where we will have to trust God fully. Jesus says "Let not your heart be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me". We are clinging to this verse as we start this process. Right now we are looking at adopting from the Ukraine. We know God has already chosen a child for us. More  to come very soon.
