It is an unspeakable privilege to welcome this precious child into our family. We are overwhelmed with joy and gratitude and delighted to introduce our son, David George Brown.
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:13-16
I will extol you, my God and King, and bless your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness. The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. Psalm 145:1-9
George Brown, we love you so much. You are a son, a brother, and a grandson. You have aunts, uncles, and cousins. You have a church family and friends and neighbors all waiting to welcome you home. You have been loved, prayed over, and pursued, but all of this pales in comparison to the love of the One who made you in His image to glorify Him. Telling you all about Him will be one of our greatest joys in this life.
We are coming for you, sweet boy. Hurry home.
