It's been 2 months since Sunnie joined our family earthside, and I can hardly believe it!
She is the greatest gift and has opened our hearts to such a deep, protective, joy filled love.
I have much to say but for now I wanted to leave you with a poem my dear friend Amy shared at our baby shower for Sunnie, that makes me cry on the daily...
"As the shimmer of dawn transforms the night
Into a blush of colour futured with delight,
The eyes of your new child awaken in you
A brightness that surprises you life,
Now as you behold your infant, you know
That this child has come for you and to you;
You feel the full force of a parents desire
To protect and shelter
Perhaps for the first time,
There awakens in you
A sense of your own mortality.
May your heart rest in the grace of the gift
And you sense how you have been called
Inside the dream of this new destiny.
May you be gentle and loving,
Clear and sure.
May you trust in the unseen providence
That has chosen you all to be a family.
May you stand sure on our ground
And know that every grace you need
Will unfold before you
Like all the mornings of your life."
