In adoption, there are lots of days that are painfully hard. And then there are days where you get a phone call that your son has been born. Suddenly, the agony of the wait is swallowed up by joy.
This family has a unique and beautiful story. It’s a story that is near and dear to my heart because it’s woven together with so many of the same threads as my own family’s story. God has sustained the Teals as they waited for their son and He has blessed them with the most beautiful baby boy. The scriptures contain many references to the banner of the Lord. In victory over enemies, Moses declared that the Lord is our banner. Isaiah prophesied about the banner that will be lifted up to bring the people to Christ. A banner makes a declaration. The life of this Banner is a declaration that the Lord is good.
“He brought me to the banquet room, and his banner over me is love.” ~Song of Solomon 2:4
