"Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever fresh and radiant possibility."
~Kate Douglas Wiggin
Yesterday, you made your grand entrance into the world. So many hearts were bursting with excitement when you arrived. I admit I cried when I saw the first photos of you. Not to worry ~ they were tears of joy.
From the moment we heard of your existence, our hearts expanded to embrace you. When we learned about your special circumstances, they stretched and grew even more. Since then, you've been center stage in our hearts and minds. The prayers that we, and many others, lifted up on your behalf are too numerous to count.
And here you are. Beautiful beyond measure. Strong like your parents. And full of "radiant possibility".
I want you to know, you could not have chosen two more loving and capable people to call Mom and Dad. What's more, you have two beautiful sisters who will lavish you with attention. You have entered into a family who will pour more love and energy into you then you can imagine!
Brayden, you are a treasure to all of us, and we couldn't love you more. Our world is richer and fuller because of you.
Quoting your Uncle Daniel, "Welcome to the world buddy!"
"A little bit of heaven drifted down from above,
A handful of happiness, a heartful of love.
The mystery of life, so sacred and sweet,
The giver of joys, so deep and complete.
Precious and priceless, so loveable too,
The world's sweetest miracle...baby, is you."
