Child of my Heart

This morning a dear friend came to visit me with two of her little ones. She brought with her a gift that touched me so deeply: a beautiful Willow Tree figurine called "Child of my Heart." When I look at it I can almost feel the embrace of our future child; the heavy weight of his body on my hip... the warmth of his forehead on my cheek... his soft breath on my neck.

That embrace can't come soon enough.


The statue came with a verse that reads:

"Child of the world,
Into my heart you came--
Bringing sun into my life,
Making family our name."

Not a child from my body. Not yet a child in my arms. But already a child of my heart.
