A year of prayers







A Gift from God

At first glance
you were so small
I hardly saw a baby at all,
with tubes and wires
a frightening sight
but you were in for a
big fight.
Not even two pounds
just skin and bones,
your body so small
with problems so big,
but you fought hard
and continued show your strength.

So many fears
So many tears.

You are home now
and learning each day
I love you dear,
more than words can ever say.

A miracle baby
A gift sent from God.
You showed the world
You showed us all.

Eli is definitely a gift. His adorable smile and pictures spreads gifts of happiness to even those that he's never met (like me).
