I have prayed for this little boy for over two years.
I still remember how excited I was when Brittany told me they were ready to start trying to get pregnant, and we began dreaming of her future little family. It has been a long journey of waiting on the Lord’s timing, and mourning the loss of their first baby just a day after they told us they were pregnant. The past two years have been riddled with heartache, questioning, bitterness and then, only by God’s grace, acceptance and joy in the midst of sorrow.
I remember praying as I rocked James to sleep one night that someday Matt and Brittany would get to rock their own kids. I had seen how much they loved my son, and how amazing they both were with children. I had watched both of them go through the toughest season of their lives and how much stronger they were in their faith and marriage because of it. I prayed that they wouldn’t give up hope, and that somehow God would bless them with a family, whether it be through adoption, fostering or their own children.
And you know what?
THE LORD IS SO GOOD.
Little Miles is such an answer to prayer. When they least expected it, God gave them a little baby. And you now what the best part is? He’s healthy. He’s growing. And he’s almost ready to show off his squishy face to the world. What a gift and miracle!
To say I love this sweet boy is an understatement. I still tear up every time I think about Matt and Brittany becoming parents. I can’t wait to hold him and tell him how many people have prayed for him. I can’t wait to see Brittany and Matt enter parenthood. And I can’t WAIT for James to meet his future BFF.
Miles Kent, we’re ready to meet you!
