Give us the courage to love our child for who our child is and can become.
We give you our shame, our frustration, our grief, our sorrow, our anger and our expectations.
Please help us see what you see in our child. Help us see your likeness. Help us see the blessing in the cross we bear.
We are always grateful for the miracles you perform in each obstacle you help our child overcome. Please help us hold our heads high. Help us to see the positive reasons you have chosen to entrust this child to our care.
We ask this in your name. Amen
Jim, Gretchen, Alex, Emily, Maddy and Natalie
