Ready and Waiting...

Hampton
Lee 
Burton

Hello my sweet baby boy.  I can't begin to tell you how many times I have looked at this ultrasound picture of you over the past six weeks.  In your face I see your Daddy and your brothers...you are certainly going to be handsome.  I am literally counting down the days until I can kiss your sweet cheeks and just smell that baby smell that you'll come with.  We have tried purposefully to prepare Tradd and Jackson for what our life will be like when you finally come, but to tell you the truth I'm not really sure myself.   What I do know for sure is that our hearts are so full and ready to love you.  

From the moment I knew you were coming, I haven't stopped praying that you'll be healthy and happy...that you will love Jesus and come to know Him and love Him as your savior.  I have prayed for your future spouse...hoping that she is being raised in a Godly family, and if not, that she will see Him in you.  I have prayed that your brothers will be examples for you to follow and that you will share a friendship with them that will last a lifetime.  And I pray that you will one day in your old age, maybe as a father yourself, look back and thank God that he gave you to us.  

Hampton, you are what God thought 
was missing in our family and we are ready and waiting.  
We love you!!
