As I worked to uncover and brighten his young face, I kept wanting to rescue him. To make it better.
But I can’t. His story is from many years ago and his life now rests in the arms of Jesus. Thankfully, in His care, no more pain or heartache can exist. Thankfully, with Him, these young eyes are beholding His glory.
And hopefully, this photograph, restored and returned to his big brother (as a surprise birthday gift) will also restore some light in their memories of this young boy….the boy with the deep, soulful eyes.
