words will never do...

As I sit here typing, the most precious 2 year old boy is sound asleep beside me ... words will never capture the peace in my spirit because of that.
He fell asleep in my arms last night and this is the reality - I'm almost certain it's the first time he's ever been rocked to sleep ... words could never capture the gratitude that God chose me to be his mommy.

The transition was amazing.  He has laughed, smiled and played with us for hours.  He has already called me "mamma" ... words escape me when I think about the amazing grace that has been lavished on us.

I know we've been prayed for and thought of by so many of our family and friends ... words could never explain the gratitude I have for all you.

Because words will never do, maybe this video will give a glimpse into one of the most precious days of my life.  I will never forget the moment when I first laid eyes on my Elijah - just like with all my babies.  God's goodness leaves me speechless...
