I prayed everyday during my pregnancy that I’d have the strength and mental clarity to take care of this little person – it scared me so much I wouldn’t know what he needed when he cried. Now that he is here, I’m still praying. Yes, I’ve learned what he needs when he cries and I know how to console him, but my prayers are slowly shifting from what I need to take care of him, to what he needs and will need in the future. He, and my future children, are going to grow up in a world that I didn’t grow up in. Experiences through their eyes will be totally different compared to experiences I had when I was their age. I pray he/ they will stay close to me and their dad, and most of all, their Savior Jesus Christ so they can navigate everything they’re going to face.
