Here’s the precious face I’ve been looking forward to sharing with you!
He’s learning to feed himself, and he’s oh-so proud.
His name is Keith, and as of today, he is Coppinger Boy #6.
Foster care and adoption is an emotional experience in at least a thousand ways. There’s joy and there’s sorrow. Adding to the family also means there is loss in some form. We don’t take that lightly.
But today, we fully embrace the joy of adding to our family. We embrace it so much that the tears won’t stop. This little boy, who has been a part of our family since he was just 2 months old, has overcome so much in his short life. That we get to be a part of this and learn more about victory in Jesus because of him humbles us greatly.
Keith loves Mommy and Daddy. He thinks all of his older brothers are THE BEST. But when Brayden walks into the room, there’s no doubt who he thinks is the BEST BEST.
These two have a special bond – so much so that Keith’s first word was actually “Brayden.” I was lobbying for “mama.” We all asssumed it would be “dada.” But when the big day came, Keith looked up at his beloved Brayden and said, “Dudden! Dudden!” It is the sweetest thing ever.
We continue to foster Boy Babe #2. Our older sons continue to embrace this new life with grace and love. Matt and I stand in amazement as we experience all God is doing and teaching us through this.
Thank you for walking this journey with us. Your love and support has meant so much – and I’ll thank you by sharing lots of adorable Keith pictures now that I can!!!
Here he is with Justus, age 20. Because yes, we now have sons aged 1-22!!!!!
He’s already learning to cook. I’m pretty sure he was making me some coffee…
Keith got to wear Elias’ hat!
Yes, he truly is as sweet as he looks.
And most days, he’s happy as can be!
God bless YOU in whatever ways He is working in YOUR lives. I have no doubt He is doing great things!
