On Monday, I got to share in a moment that was truly awesome, amazing, inspiring, overwhelming...priceless. I would not have missed it for the world. If you don't know, my brother and sister-in-law's son from the Congo is finally home! He is almost 8 months old and he is beautiful, snuggly, happy...perfect.
I will never forget the sight of my brother and sister-in-law wrapping their arms around Amaziah, covering him with kisses and tears. And what did he do? He snuggled right in. He wrapped his arms around my sister-in-law, laid his head on her chest and cuddled. Truly Amazing.
Of course, I was a sobbing mess. It was such a beautiful sight. My brother and sister-in-law have waited to have a baby for so long...and now God has blessed them with this loving, beautiful, amazing little boy. I don't think anyone expected the bonding to be so instantaneous. Before Amaziah was carried down the corridor, my brother had told his wife "now, remember, he might be screaming, crying, but that's ok..." Well, that wasn't the case at all! He was so loving! And when my sister-in-law's dad started talking to Amaziah, he just started grinning!! And then he was just all smiles!
The joy that filled that airport terminal was indescribable. They have their baby...their son is finally home!!!
Congratulations to Jason, Kendra, and Amaziah. Our family is forever blessed.
