Mike and Sydney


Waiting, longing,
  Searching for that one.

Finding, discovering,
  Yearning to become.

Seeing, loving,
  Becoming at last One.

Scott L. Vanatter, 1 October 2010 (Poem in honor of Mike and Sydney. What a wonderful, special, beautiful couple.)

Carrie and Scott's new baby, Cade Ellis


He sighs
  And comforts our very soul.

His eyes
  Reveal our every goal.

Then he testifies
  And now we really know. Again.

Scott L. Vanatter, 30 September 2010 (This poem, in honor of Cade, can be read in at least a couple ways. First, when we encounter him -- taking care of him when he is 4 weeks, or 4 months old, etc. Second is when he is forty or fifty years old – when he might be caring for us.)
