“Mommy, let’s pray for the New Daddy.”
I love this suggestion, and I’ll never say no. Together we pray for him, the nameless someone, and we ask God to prepare him for us, to prepare us for him, and to let us find each other when God wants us to.
In the quiet after Amen, Tuck says, “Hey, Mommy? Can I tell you something? I hope the New Daddy isn’t your brother.”
Dude. It won’t be.
