His story.

While our hearts and minds are still filled with thoughts and prayers for Burundi, I wanted to share a few more pictures of our trip to Rwanda.

These pictures are significant.  They are each a part of Nate's story.  Now we have always been big believers in not hiding his story, but rather treating it as everyone else's so as to communicate with Nate that it is nothing for him to be ashamed of.  BUT, what I'm learning as he gets older is that he has his own thoughts about all of this and ways that he wants to process it and our job as his parents is to walk alongside him in this journey that isn't like all of his siblings that were born in a hospital across the street from Costco.

So here are the pictures, but today that's all he would want to share and we'll respect that.  I'm sure (or at least I hope) there will be a time when he'll want to share the significance of each of these images.  To tell the amazing way that God moved through his life.  But he's seven and right now doesn't want an amazing story.  He just wants to play Mario Kart and ride his bike and we are good with that.
