Last night John and I were praying for Aiden before bed. I prayed and then John prayed starting his prayer like this, “Father, I ask you to protect my son, keep him safe from harm, surround him with angels….”
The thing that stunned my heart and made me so grateful for the man I married was the “MY SON” part of his prayer. We said “yes” to Aiden as a family, and in our hearts he is ours. My husband echoes Malachi 4:6 in his life as his heart has truly turned toward this child of ours, this precious one that he calls “son.”
So we wait on the Lord and trust that He will bring Aiden safely home, our hearts have turned, and we call him “son.”
