Logged In 4 Months!

For my daughter:

Today I said a prayer for you
My daughter of China, daughter of mine
Unknown, unborn and yet already so much of my heart
I dream of our life in flowers and light
and wonder when this life will start?

Who will you be? Who will you become?
A gentle wind or a beating drum?
A dreamer ? A dancer? A funny face maker?
A thinker? A twirler? A pretend cookie baker?

Whoever you are, whoever you'll be
I love you already ; I can't wait to see
Today we are but one day closer to knowing your spirit, to knowing your face
One day closer in this long long chase

Today I said a prayer for you
My daughter of China, daughter of mine
To keep you safe, to hold you close
Until we meet in His perfect time

Thought of you first thing today as I was getting ready for church--knowing it was your 4 month lidversary.

I know the wait seems monumental but let's rejoice in all the great things we have to look forward to.

Did you write this gorgeous poem??? I love it and so will she.
