What a joy it has been to participate in and chronicle the “Journey to Toby!”
From those first prayers, asking God to bless this family with another child, to the moments when we stood outside of a hospital door, eager to meet this precious little boy- it has been an adventure.
And you know what I’ve learned?
Adventures aren’t always easy- but they are always worth it.
Worth it to stand on this side and look back to see how God moved. Worth it to see how He guided and how He so incredibly provided. Worth it to see the joy and to know there is always hope. Worth it to have cried tears, tears that are now replaced with smiles and laughter. Worth it to see the excitement in a little girl who has prayed for a sibling for years. Worth it.
The journey is always worth it, because we know who holds the pen and is writing the chapters in our story.
So, welcome to the world Toby McIntosh! We know that the Lord is going to use you for great and mighty things over the course of your life.
May you always keep your eyes focused on him and may he be the anchor for your soul.

I have to admit, I’m a complete sucker for newborn black and white images. Seriously, these are hands down my faves!
