Before you came to our family, we didn’t know what we were missing.
You know you have nine big brothers and sisters. We love babies. We were used to babies.
But when God made you inside of me, He decided to surprise us with an extra gift! He gave you a little extra ‘something’ that He didn’t give your brothers and sisters.
Sure enough, even before you were born, we started noticing that He was sending more along with you!
More celebration, more thankfulness, more compassion, more laughter, more thought, more gentleness, more excitement, more beauty, more patience, more understanding, more joy.
More love! So much love that having you is like being on a super LOVE adventure!
It’s all good.
I will tell you a little secret that most people would never guess.
When God gave you to us, He gave us a perfect baby.
You are perfectly what God made you to be. Perfectly what we need.
We are so happy that God picked us to be your family!
We will do our very best to teach you all we can, Verity. We will teach you to read, so you can read the Bible. We will teach you how to be a young lady. We will teach you that you have Up syndrome. We can hardly wait to find out all you can learn to do.
Most of all and best of all, we want to show you Jesus!!
Verity Joy, we love you, our little joy-baby from God.
