Celebrate Life

"He is mine in a way that he will never be hers, yet he is hers in a way that he will never be mine, and so together, we are motherhood." ~Desha Wood

My daughter's godparents just adopted a sweet baby boy.

A sweet baby boy with long fingers and wiggly legs and a wispy dusting of dark hair. A sweet baby boy who already likes music.

This baby is just a miracle.

He's been prayed for and hoped for and prepared for, for so long now.

What a gift to get to share in the joy of a new little life!

My mom once said, "Everything gets magical again when you have a baby." And it's so true. Every gust of wind outside is something brand new for the baby to experience for the first time. Every dog lick on the baby's naked curled up toes is a moment where you get to experience dog licks again for the very first time. Every photo you take now, one day becomes his view of how his life began.

(Baby boy, just so you know, your life began with so much love and wonder surrounding you!)

Magical indeed.

What miracle are you hoping or preparing for? Tell your friends and family, and let them share in the fun of the anticipation!


  1. It's such a beautiful thing! He is a wonderful little boy, who will grow up with beautiful, loving, fantastic parents!

  2. Congrats are in order! Here's to a life time of seeing things thru innocent eyes once again!

  3. congratulations to your daughters godparents!
