A prayer for our daughter




I read the following poem on another family's website. It just captures what we are feeling right now, and I had to share it.




A Prayer for My Child


May you be safe and sleep soundly through the night,

May you be safe as you wake to the morning light,

May you feel our love from far away,

May it comfort and protect you through the day.

We will pray for you, our little one,

Until our time of waiting is done.

We will pray that the Lord keeps you safe from harm,

Until the child of our hearts becomes the child in our arms.
