Two whole years ago today, we saw this sweet face for the first time.
Marshall and I sat together on our couch in Germany and scrolled through the email so we could finally see his face. That face took our breath away. Knocked it right out of me. Those eyes took hold of me and haven't let go since.
I expect they never will. Two years later, most of my time is spent with this little guy. What a gift God has given us. He was sooooo hard to wait for, but it was all worth it. In fact, most of the biggest blessings in our lives come with a wait.
Silas Mezmur Coen, you are a miracle! Only by God's grace are we a family. I'm honored that He orchestrated a million bajillion details so that we could come together. You are our first born son. You made me a Momma. You make my heart ache with love. You crack me up.
God's plan for your life is perfect and I can't wait to see it unfold.
