Even If Only For a Short While...

"In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here."
- "Angel" Sarah McLachlan

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for our family/friends yesterday. Baby Arrayah arrived on this earth at 6:10 am this morning and had three amazing hours with her family to say hello and then goodbye, which is more than that the doctors had ever expected.

I got to hold her today, after she had already left this earth. She was truly beautiful.

"We shall find peace. We shall hear angels,
we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds."
-Chekov

So sad to read this update. Thank God for the 3 hours Cadie and Jamal had with their precious Arrayah. I can't imagine having to say goodbye, though. :-( I will pray for the family as they walk out their journey of grief. You might refer them to a blog of a Christian woman who writes beautifully about saying goodbye to her son minutes after his birth. Her writing is so honest and inspiring. The blog name is "He Will Carry Me". The link is on my blog roll.

It is such a bittersweet moment to be able to meet that little person growing inside of you and knowing that you only have a few precious moments with her. I often picture my Annabelle dancing with the angels and now she has Arrayah dancing with her. :-) The family is in my thoughts and prayers in this difficult time.
