Sweet Baby, these are the forever arms that never tire of holding you. Arms belonging to a mom and dad who chose you, knowing that you would be the perfect match for their family. Parents who will tell you tales of their travels across the world because they want to pass on a sense of adventure. Parents who will have impromptu sing-alongs because there is joy in sharing music together. Parents who will read favorite books to teach you important lessons for life.
Parents who know of these great gifts- adventure, arts, literature. But still, each day, they pass on something even greater- kindness. Sweet boy, may this already be growing inside you as they hold you so tight.
To Erin and John, thank you for letting me document your incredible family and the blessings God has brought into your life. You have remarkable joy.
