Today you would be 1...

if you had been born on your due date. Caroline, what I wouldn't give to celebrate your first birthday with you today. I'd let you lick all the icing off your first birthday cupcake and make a great big mess! While we sure wish you were here, we rest in knowing you reside in a place better than we could ever imagine. We love you baby girl. Thank you for all you have taught us. Your little brother is blessed with a true angel watching over him.
xoxo,
Mommy


1Peter:6-7 "In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith‒of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire‒may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed."

I would love to have known baby Caroline, and I'm glad that one day I will get to meet her and tell her what a wonderful mommy she has. (((hugs))) Jess.

I am thinking of you and Nick today and sending out big hugs all the way from Texas. Hope you can feel them.

This one was a tear-jerker. Ryan and I are both sitting here with tears running down our faces. (Although I wasn't supposed to tell you about the Ryan part of the equation.)

We're sending big hugs your way. We love you and can't wait to meet Caroline's little brother.

Love,
Meag and Ryan

I'm sorry I missed the date, but I know how much you miss her and think of you often...
I will be praying for you in the next two months until you meet Brooks face to face!
