His hand in mine

One of my favorite things about being a mom of little ones is the feeling of their hand in mine.

For me, it expresses trust, protection, connection ... it tells the world ... we belong together. I'm not sure I'd really thought about that until we adopted our son ...

Last week ...we were walking on a sidewalk

... nobody near us

     ... he reached up

          ... and put his hand in mine

... for the first time

    ... in 17 months.

Baby steps on the long road of attachment.



  1. What a wonderful Christmas gift!

  2. It might be only a baby step.....but what a step!!! Those little things all add up to one big thing. So happy for you. :-)

  4. What a glorious moment that must have been. You are so precious Amy, thank you for your faith and continuing to persist even while difficult. This truly brings honor to our Lord.
