Today




My Little One,

Today is the day you were supposed to join our family. If only the tears we shed today were tears of joy at your arrival! You were -- and are -- so very wanted and loved. I know Jesus will love and care for you more tenderly than we ever could, but how I wish I could hold you today. 

Happy Birthday, baby girl.

  6. What a blessing that we are able to be close in location again, especially at such a time. I am so thankful to God that He chose you as a little girl, and to see how He comforts you and all of us through difficult days in life. On the 27th, I too as Baby Girl's grandmother wanted to hold her in my arms. It comforts me so to know that she is with Jesus now and knows no sadness or pain. Mum

      Love always,
      Shannon
