Zeke's Heart

      Our little boy's heart is strong and brave,

from his eyes you can tell that it is full of joy.

They say he is shy and loves to cuddle,

that he likes cars and to play games.


His presence is absolutely captivating.

We are praying that God protects his heart,

keeps it tender,

speaks His great love into it.

That he would know that he is precious,

that he is loved
 and that we are doing everything we can to get to him.

What we know about his physical heart is honestly

very little.

His file contains two sentences about his heart.

No echo,

No ekg,

No surgical report.

What we know is that he was left VERY tiny on the side of the road,

not a busy road,

in the mountains,

in winter.

He is a miracle,

and it is beyond an honor that God has called us to be his parents.

We know that he has been diagnosed with the same heart condition as Georgia.

His file says that he was very sick and had a

"radical open heart surgery"

very young,

all by himself.

He was in the hospital for 2 months...

we do not know if anyone was with him,

if he was held,


if anyone looked into his eyes.

We do not know what they did during surgery or how his heart is doing now.

We know that God was there and we pray that somehow we can find out more of the pieces of his beautiful story....

So we are embracing a lots of question marks.

Georgia's Cardiologist reviewed the file and said,

"If you know he is your son, do everything you can to get him here and we will do all we can with whatever we find!"

and so we pray,

we step out,

we wrestle with fear,

we weep for how brave our son has had be

and most of all we bend low in thanksgiving...

that we get to be the arms that hold this miracle,

that our hearts get to grow bigger,

that somehow, in all of our frail humanity

God chose us to embrace this precious,

beyond brave,

miracle boy.

And that is where his name comes from,


it means,

"God will strengthen"

Our Zeke,

beyond loved,

worth fighting for,

worth every sacrifice,

an honor that surpasses understanding to behold,

our son.

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
John 14:18

This is such a beautiful post. I think it is no accident that I came across your blog. My husband and I are also in the midst of bringing our son home and we are also left with many questions and many uncertainties. The only thing we know for sure is that he is ours. We are already in love and can't wait to bring him home. I will be praying for you, your family, your new little guy and that all of your needs will be met to bring him home. Thank you for the post. It truly lifted my spirit.
