A Brand New Babe

Tuesday June 7, 2011
I got to hold such a sweet little one today. He has no idea how blessed he already is.

He had a birth mom whose one desire is that he would know she knows Christ. He has a life mom and dad who have poured themselves out over and over again – mentoring a young disadvantaged man, taking in three brothers and becoming foster parents overnight. They’ve lived a life of giving and last week, they got the sweetest gift.

We sat and fed him and burped him and oohed and aahed over him. I was happy she got a son so I could share my book with her. We looked at all his sweet fingers and toes, pulled out all the cute clothes waiting for him.

It was a wonderful afternoon.

I left with such a feeling of fullness and joy, and I know this couple is filled to the brim with the same.

When we come to the Father, how much more does He joy over us.

"See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!" (I John 3:1)

Laura,

It always amazes me how a newborn is already loved by so many. How brave of the birth mother. How exciting for the life parents. How I want to reach through the screen and hold that little baby!
