Nothing like a little one knowing "dad is back home" he looks very happy.

I am sure you will feel much better too now.

Just to have your husband stand in the kitchen for a moment with an arm around your shoulders saying "you ok honey!" to make all that you have carried on those shoulders now shared again feel so good.

best wishes to you my dear new friend

I went back and looked at the expression on Nathan's face, and his hand resting on his dads arm. Nathan couldn't look any safer and his dad couldn't look any more at peace. I'm at work right now with tears in my eyes. It reminded me of the feeling of safety, love, and overwhelming peace that surrounds us when we rest our hand on our Fathers arm. That picture is absolutely priceless. I'm glad I looked at it a second time and saw Jesus in it.

The comments have already been made, and your little boy looks as contended as he can be. Little Nathan is so fortunate to have you for parents..... I think the sweetest sight I ever seen was when my friend and I went thru a childrens home. We saw different children, one had been abanded, there were a couple water heads and other children parents didn't want. Last, the care giver opened a door and there were 5 of the sweetest little Down's children sitting on potty chairs, (they was trying to potty train them) I can see it as plain today as I could 40 years ago. I can't imagine giving up a child.
