Sumter, because his daddy always liked that name.
Lane, because of Caleigh’s grandfather. Who, when he walked into the room, found out his name, held his namesake and looked up with a tear rolling down his cheek.
Sumter Lane entered this world within MINUTES of Caleigh arriving at the hospital. And his passion for life has released something inside these two parents that they never knew they could feel so, so deeply.
Caleigh will tell you, she just cannot stop staring at him. And Christie can’t keep his eyes off the mother of his child.
Both such representations of the Father’s love for us.
Holy, powerful and unconditional.
