Our last Summit was centered on the idea of identity. What makes us who we are? When someone asks about us, what sorts of language do we use to tell them?
Today I learned something amazing about identity. Melissa and I went to our ultrasound appointment and the gender of our child was confirmed.
In that single moment, the child Melissa carries ceased to be an "it", an abstract idea of a baby-on-the-way, and took on a new identity in our hearts and minds. The child-to-be became our precious Katie, our daughter, the delightful little girl with whom God has blessed us beyond measure. We expect to meet Katelyn Tatiana Campbell face to face toward the end of June, and until then, we are content to speak softly to her and enjoy her fluttering movements as she is formed by the hand of the Master.
