Yesterday as I was reading Psalm 147, this verse jumped out at me:

He has blessed your children within you. v. 13

I immediately recognized it as a promise for me regarding our to-be-adopted child. He has blessed the child that I carry within me. While I’m not carrying this child in my womb, as I did Button and Cutie Pie, I am carrying this child in my heart.

Thank you, Lord, for blessing this child whom you have chosen for us to parent even though we do not even know him/her yet.
