It's a funny thing.
I would have told you, I loved him the first day we met.
I would have told you, I loved him the first day he spontaneously kissed me.
Those things both happened almost 3 months ago now.
Yesterday, he asked me for a hug.
Today, when saying our prayers before lunch, instead of folding his hands he reached out and held mine. I continued with the prayer and he kept looking at me and got wet eyes and a smile on his face as he said "Amen".
Today - I love this child. And it's different than 3 months ago. Not less. Not more.... different. I Love this child.
I know, without a doubt there is more growth to come. Probably more hard work ahead too. But I no longer wonder if I can really do this... well, today, I don't wonder.
Thank you Lord for entrusting me to him.
