I got your daddy this necklace for his birthday. He lets me wear it (a lot) because there’s just something about having your little footprint close to my heart that brings me peace. Tonight, I was bouncing sister because she was a little fussy (a common evening occurrence). She finally calmed down, and let herself sink into my arms. I looked down, and this made me catch my breath…
Seeing her little hand by your tiny foot tugged hard at your mama’s heart. Another reminder of how real your absence is. It made me think about how much she must miss you…her companion from her very first days of life. I know she realizes a piece of her is missing…you took a piece of all of us with you, sweet girl.
Seeing the two of you so close made me long to watch you playing on the floor together, babbling back and forth as you explored this great big world. This morning, sissy laid in her crib “talking” for almost an hour, sometimes squealing with delight. I’m sure she was talking to you.
With every milestone and each new adventure, we know you are with her. Moments like this remind me that you are always near. No matter what the world sees, we are a family of four, and we have the most beautiful twin daughters. It may not be the story we planned, but it is the story God wrote for us. And I know the story has a happy ending.
Miss you most,
