We had a party today to celebrate your life and the gift that you are to us. You had over 85 people who came to shower you with love! You got some really cute clothes, a couple blankies, a jewelry box (and some jewelry!), a beautiful Christmas ornament, a poem written by Nana along with lots of cards with words of hope and encouragement...and $1,410.00 towards your playground!
One of your gifts is a little plaque that has a picture of a footprint and says "Sometimes the smallest gifts leave the biggest impressions." You, my precious one, have touched so many hearts. I am so proud to be your Mama. The card that came with it said that she would never be able to see a footprint in the sand and not think of you...
I won't either... and my next thought will be about the picture that we are given in the footprints poem where the person asks the Lord, "Where were you when I needed you most?" and He replies.."When there is one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you" There may only be one set of footprints, my girl, but there are three of us...me, you and Jesus - the prints in the sand are His, the ones on my heart are yours... Mine are nowhere to be found because this is all about you and Jesus - and I am so honored to be chosen to carry you to Him, as much as I don't want to let you go. I will never ever be the same and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love you with all that I am and I will never ever regret your story. It's amazing and you are beautiful.
All my love,
