Tiny Fingers Hold My Heart

Last night as I was feeding Melana I happened to look down and find her just staring at my face. Her big blue eyes were so clear and bright. I grabbed her hand and she instantly wrapped her tiny fingers around my finger all the while never taking her eyes off me.
It hit me then that this little precious cutie is relying on me for life. Feedings, diaper changes, burping etc. Those are the things I can do. This is the easy part. What scares me is the whole process of molding her mind, teaching her right from wrong, turning her into a productive, responsible, and caring citizen of society and more importantly a Godly woman of God.
That is what terrifies me. We've never done that before. We don't know what we're doing. Where do we start? Yikes! I could so easily get overwhelmed right now. But then I realize that this is where it starts. It starts by taking her hand...
