~the night angels were with my boy...

ran across this the other day when i was cleaning. it's been nearly 10 years and i still remember this day like it was yesterday. i still get that lump in my throat when i read this. my son was 2-1/2 actually when he wondered out of a hotel room in the middle of the night. i rec'd the call at 8:30 a.m. that they found him and he was placed in a shelter the rest the evening as they didn't know who he belonged too.
i still picture him wondering around in his diaper in the pitch black on the highway while i was sleeping through the whole thing, not even knowing he was out there.
the truck driver that found my son almost hit him. later after talking to the man he said
 "he thought it was a wolf in the road and hit his breaks so hard it stalled his semi truck"
THANK GOD IT STALLED HIS SEMI TRUCK!
THANK GOD HE REALIZED IT WAS A BOY AND JUMPED OUT OF HIS TRUCK
TO RESCUE MY BABY BOY!
the truck driver said he made eye contact with brady when he stepped out of his truck and brady took off running in the field
he chased him and brought him to safety that night.
the only thing brady ended up with is stickers all through his feet from running through the field.
THANK GOD
AND THE ANGELS HE SENT THAT NIGHT TO BE WITH MY BOY!

What a faithful God!!! Scary, scary for a mama to go through that. Brady certainly is in God's hands.
