Have you met my heart?

Have you met my heart?

At 3.5 years old he is currently at 97th percentile for height and weight.

I was thinking this morning about how blessed I am by him and our journey together. I know not everyone has such a romantic adoption experience. I was thinking about the day I met him and he walked right into my arms and fell asleep safe in my arms within the first hour of our time together.

We had prayed that the LORD would whisper to him about us and that he would feel safe and know us when we met him. I know that the LORD answered that prayer. This boy... he crawled into my arms 17 months ago and hasnt left them since.

"Mommy - I need to cuddle you" is a consistent statement in our home and one I never get sick of.

His favorite games are light saber fights "lets play fighting swords" and cars. He likes to take his cars and army men and line them up in rows. He hates baths and loves tomatoes. His favorite thing to eat is peanut butter and jelly. I make his peanut butter from peanuts and his jam from berries we picked this year. He likes hats and sunglasses and enjoys clothes shopping and trying on hats.

I am in constant awe of who he is and who he is becoming. He is my heart.
