Happy Birthday Sweet Caroline

Dear Caroline,

Happy 1st Birthday to my sweet baby girl! I can not believe that one whole year has already passed since you have been gone. To Momma it still seems like yesterday that you were brought in to this world much much too early.

Momma and Daddy were soo excited when we first learned that we were expecting you. We were over the moon that we would be adding you to your older brothers! We were even more excited the day that we found out that you were a little girl! We were soo proud that we were going to be parents to a daughter and your brothers were super excited that they were going to have a little sister to watch out for and love.

We were beyond devastated a little more than a week and a half later to learn that our family's plans were not to be. The day we found out that you would only be our angel baby to be held in our hearts was the worst and most crushing days of our lives. You were already soo special and so loved to all four of us!

Despite the heartache that your loss has brought upon all of us, we are soo thankful that we had you even for such a brief moment. We know that you are waiting for us in Heaven and we soo look forward to that special day when we can all be reunited as a whole family. We know that you look down upon us daily and are our special guardian angel. We are soo blessed that you watched over your little brother Griffin and helped deliver him safely and soundly into our arms when he could have been soo easily lost too.

We miss you, love you, and think about you still nearly ever moment of every day. Thank you for the brief joy that you brought to our lives. We hope that we are able to honor you and your memory in many ways so that your little life has as much meaning as possible.

We love you with all our hearts, all our souls, and all our beans!

Love you,

Momma

Oh, sweet Hillary - I am so behind on posting and reading posts - that somehow I have missed the most important one.

Happy (late) b-day to Miss Caroline. What a sweet sweet baby girl that blessed your life forever - and how beautiful she IS! What a gift to have known her this side of heaven. My prayers are with you until you meet her again....dancing at the feet of Jesus.


I have had 2 very close friends lose baby girls at birth (one prematurely and one at 35 weeks due to a neurological disorder) both girls have blogs:) It might be worth clicking over. They are wonderful Christian girls who have put their faith, like you, in the Almighty, continuing with their family (adoption and biologically).....

Cindy, Cambell's mommy (23 weeks gestation)

Emily, Miller Graces' mommy (35 weeks, lived 5 days)
www.emily0305.blogspot.com.......Emily is a fantastic writer that inspires me in my walk with the Lord and her perspective on Miller Grace and her life.....is just amazing.

I just thought these girls could be an encouragement to you and your walk as Carolines Mommy.......
