Little Nate,

 

You are about 10 hours away from me but not even a second from my mind.

 

You’ve been entrusted for a short time with caregivers, in which I praise God, but you are soon to meet your forever family.

 

Your mom has recently readied your room, but has been preparing her heart for you for years.

 

Your sister Sophie Mei, we pretty much just call her Sophie, Soph, sweet face, sweet head and other names…is getting ready for you.

 

Sophie has taken to one of her baby dolls for the first time and shows great care for her. I know she is getting ready for you.

 

Be patient with her little man, she will be full of love but will be learning how to have a brother loved by mom and dad too.

 

I praise God for your birthday September 8, 2011 and I praise God’s ordained date for putting you in our arms 2012.

 

I thank Providence for how He works all things out. My Father in Heaven is calling me to be your father on Earth…and he has planned this before you and I were even born!

 

I thank Jesus for reminding me time and time again how he has brought me into the family of God and called me a son of the most high.

 

You nor I can carry the name or honor of being the Most High, we were not made to bear the weight of this. This is why, son, we are to worship Jesus.

 

Nate, you need me, you need your mom, you need Sophie, and we will need you as you grow. But these needs are not our ultimate needs, our biggest needs.

 

You need a Savior, which I am not.

 

You need a perfect Father, which I am not.

 

You need a redeemer, someone I cannot be.

 

You need a love that never shifts, a hope that never fades, a faith that can move mountains. This will not be found in me. However the One who is to be your love, hope and faith is in me.

 

So I will point you, Nathanael, to Jesus.

 

This is where I will rest as your dad. In the arms of my Savior who knows I am not enough for you, but has seen fit to allow me to be a light into your life. To love you.

 

You are going to love your grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins & friends. Sophie will teach you who’s who and how to best get what you want.

 

There is more to say, but I will keep it for your little ears buddy!

 

I love you,

Dad

    This is beautiful Marc! I wish I had done something similar to this with Brent when he was born, but there were years that I got away from our Father and I’m just thankful that thanks to my loving wife and family I’ve found my way back into His arms. He is always waiting on us when we stray.

    Nate, you are one lucky little boy to have Marc, Sherry and Sophie as your family. We all patiently wait to meet you and can’t wait to give you hugs and kisses. We thank God for the children he has brought into our family. You are truly a blessing and we look forward to the future.

    Love Grammy M

    Dear Little One, You are so blessed to be given to your new family. Your chances for learning about and
    living for Jesus Christ have been increased tremendously. We are excited to meet you. May God bless
    you and allow you to trust him at a early age. May He use your little life for His Wonderful Plan and
    Purpose. Someday we will meet, until then I shall pray for this sweet
    union for your family. May you
    bind quickly and roots of love go deeply. With my love, Aunt Paula
