Alright everyone!! This is Dan and it's my turn now!
So...we are so excited to see our little man and bring him home. I have been thinking a lot about what it means to be a good parent lately. We all mess up and get things wrong, but we love our children with all our hearts and want what is best for them, right? At this stage of the game for us, I think the best (and only) thing we can really do right now is pray. Pray for him, his health, his heart, and his safety. And then it dawned on me...that is the best thing for any parent to do! Our child is far away, and we really can't do much to keep him safe... but when it all comes down to it, that's all any parent can do. As we go through this hard time of waiting to bring our little dude home, I have realized that he is in God's hands...but even when he is home, He is still in God's hands, not ours! GOD HAS GIVEN US THE AWESOME OPPORTUNITY TO PARENT THIS CHILD!
So I digress... We have to make the most of the time that the Lord gives us with our little guy before he grows up. And I'm sure it will go much quicker than we want! We must be the Godly example in his life and point him to Christ, for this is our joy as parents.
I wrote this song to my little man, to sing to him every night before bed, to point him to the one and only Jesus. Sleep in peace my sweet little boy, until we meet face to face! WE LOVE YOU!
