Where did my baby go? Who is this young man with facial hair and a pierced nose who seems to be approaching 18 at warp speed that we hardly recognize him at first glance?
I think that I have prayed for this kid more than I've prayed for anything else in my life. My first born. Such a pip-squeak at birth measuring 19" and now towering over me at 6'1". What will he do with his life after high school? Will his burden be light and his road paved with opportunities? Will he choose wisely?
Letting go these past nine months has been easier than I thought it would be, but that doesn't mean I don't miss him on a daily basis.
