The world has gone crazy. What were we thinking??
But we've been praying for this child since before we started trying 2+ years ago, and the world shutting down because of Covid-19 12 weeks ago or the George Floyd protests yesterday that have rocked cities we love don't change that a baby is always something to celebrate. When we saw those two lines, our world shifted.
We want to be the best parents. Set good examples of godly love. Teach our babies about respect for ALL of God's children. I can't expect this happy season of my life to pause the uncertainty and sadness in the rest of the world. God has opened opportunities for each of us to show His love because our world is imperfect and we the people are imperfect. Maybe this is ours.
For some reason, Brian and I are meant to become parents right now. Our baby is meant to live and learn and laugh and love in a time that it seems harder and harder to do all those things.
Pray for parents. Pray for children. Pray for each other. Pray for change in the system and change in hearts.
