  37. What an incredible photo of a priceless moment. As Ive prayed for your family immensly over the last week and a half I have experienced the reminder that God knows ALL. When you started this process those 2 years ago, God knew what was instore in the future, the struggle you would face. But what an incredible work of the Lord that your story brought a nation together in prayer. God has used your son as a way to grow His kingdom and I believe this is only the first time of many that your little guy will do huge things for the kingdom!

    Many many congrats and blessings for your family!

    Another "silent" reader of your blog for some time. I can't stop crying, tears of joy and hope and love for your entire family. My best friend is due home this evening from Miami with their two haitian children (Gods Little Angels Orphange)- what a journey you all have been through. I will be thinking of your family as you bond and snuggle and bond. I am so happy for you I could (and will!) sing to the mountain tops!
