Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

Blessings In Disguise

Blessings in Disguise
By Thomas Kempis
God sends his little angels
In many forms and guises,
They come as lovely miracles
That God alone devises.
For every little angel
With a body bent and broken,
Or a little mind disabled
Or little words unspoken,
Is just God's way of trying
To reach and touch the hand
Of all who do not know Him
And cannot understand
That often through an angel
Whose wings will never fly
The Lord is pointing out the way
To His eternal sky
Where there will be no handicaps
Of body, soul or mind,
And where all limitations
Will be dropped and left behind.
So accept these little angels
As gifts from God above,
And thank Him for this lesson
In faith and hope and love.

This poem is so sweet- and such a true sentiment about how our lives take us in directions we never expected, but it is all for a reason. Thanks for your post on Mairead's blog, it was very touching, and I know that you understand how everything can be put into the right perspective when we look at the faces of our little ones. Thanks-- love you guys!
