~I Love You My Heavenly~
We are learning how to live without our daughter, our Heavenly. Everyday seems nearly impossible without her. Almost immediately after her death, we decided we would not let her memory slowly fade from us, from the world. So we are working on keeping her memory alive. Heavenly's Life. I always felt that Heavenly's life was different from everyone else's. I never knew why I felt this but now, I know. Even though Heavenly was only here for 14 months, she has already made an incredible impact. Maybe her purpose was to come here and teach joy, happiness and kindess- to teach love. I am not ok with Heavenly being somewhere besides with us, but, I didn't get to choose. So, now, as her Mama, I will make sure her short but incredibly beautiful life has a reason. I will keep her light shining. Now and Forever.
In the still of the night we can close our eyes and we are transformed back to a time when life made sense and there were no hard choices to make. We are taken back to a sweet joyous smile and a precious innocent face looking back at us. We are taken back to moments of time and we remind ourselves how thankful and blessed we are to have those to look back upon. We watched the life of our sweet Heavenly flutter away into the Heavens, We are simply thankful to have her footprints imbedded on our hearts. We are grateful and so completely and totally blessed to be the lucky ones to be her parents.
We will forever be thankful for every second We got with you. No matter how far apart we are, you are always in our hearts. We love you just as much now as the day we had to say good-bye, and we always will.
Children who die are not really gone,
But go to a place that is something like home,
Where they sleep the deep sleep, as quiet as stone,
Until we can join them when our lives are done.
Children who die are not really dead,
But just like good children tucked into bed,
Wait the long wait while we go ahead
Till our tales are all told and our tears are all shed.
Children who die feel no pleasure or pain
In the place where they wait till they see us again,
And all of us dance in a world washed with rain
Where the sun shines so brightly no sorrows remain.

No parent should ever outlive a child, but unfortunately this happens more often than it should. The passing of one of our childrens is one of the most tragic and heart wrenching losses. Not only do we as a parent grieve, but often,Her brothers and sister are grieving as well. It is a time in our life that changes everything: our future, our plans, our goals, our relationships (socially and romantically), and most importantly WE have changed. No matter what the circumstances surrounding our child's passing are, it is still shocking, distressing, and extremely painful. Our precious baby received her Angel wings far too soon for us. The journey to healing is a long, dark, and difficult one. our grief is born out of unconditional love for our child. That love will never change. It is important to know that embracing life is never a sign that we have stopped missing our child, but rather, an example that love is eternal. The one thing we are certain of, is a physical passing can not take away or break the bond between a mother and/or father and their child. What is a lifetime to us is just a blink of an eye to them until we see each other again. Our child continues to encompass us with her love and guidance each and every day.
