The fifth dimension is love!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinithians 5:17 (ESV)

Dear Kai,

We've seen you!

I know we've already seen you a lot but this time was different! Momma organised a special scan so that we could see you in 4D! It was pretty thrilling! Your momma had shown me photos of scans of other babies but I wasn't sure what you were going to look like. I guess I was a little nervous. With all the worries that we have had over the last few months I wasn't sure what to expect. It was good to feel all those worries disappear when we saw your little face for the first time.

Your momma and I have spent a lot of time talking about you, our hopes for your future, the consequences of scan results and what they may mean for you, lots of possibilities and "What if...?" questions. But to see your face reminded me of how very blessed we are to have you in our lives, even though you're still not going to be born for another 3 months!

God has been challenging me since your momma and I got married, that being a parent is tough because, even though we know that you are our child, we don't know you yet!

It seems like a funny thing to say, but it's good for us to remember that, as much as I may want you to be like your momma, or like your Grandma or your Oupa, the person you will be most like is... YOU! You are a unique person, created by our loving Creator and as you grow I hope that I never forget that your destiny is not to be like me, ("Jonny Jr." as some might say) but your destiny is to be a beautiful creation, dearly loved by God and a person that Jesus thought was worth dying for.

We pray every day that God will give us the strength, courage and humility to help you be a new creation!

You are a joy to behold, my son, and I will treasure every moment that you are in my life.

Daddy xx
