Noah's Dedication

This past Sunday, Kc and I dedicated Noah at our church.
A baby dedication is not salvific in nature but rather a public commitment to raise Noah to be a man of God. We were blessed to be surrounded by so many friends and family members. Our pastor, Brad, spoke about our history and our struggles after Ryan's death. He then charged Kc and I to teach Noah about God's love through the love we show for each other. Noah wore my grandfather's, his great-grandfather's, baptismal gown. It has been worn by so many members of my family and there are spit-up stains on the gown to prove it.After the dedication, we all headed over to my parent's house for dinner. We cannot thank them enough for opening up their home to over fifty friends who got to meet and hold Noah. Kc and I were truly overwhelmed by all the love and support we experienced. We thank you all for your amazing generosity and encouragement.

    Sorry we missed your dedication Noah, but we were glad we got to see you this weekend and that you were able to meet your cousin.
