The Newest Angel

At 12:45 today, Carter was called home.

He grew his little wings very peacefully in his mommy and daddy's arms.

Carter, I love you more than anything in the world. You have been my life for 14 months, and every single second was well worth it. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I never knew what love was before you were born. I never appreciated the little things before you were born. I never had so much faith in the lord until you were born. Thank you for all of the wonderful gifts you blessed us with. I love you baby boy...save me a place next to you in heaven. Have fun partying with your Grandpa Mike!

I'm so happy and sad at the same time! Sad for you and your family left behind, but I know just like in my little story, he is telling God what a great job he did bringing people together, even if he did suffer!
Anything you need, you have my number!

I've never posted before, but I've been following for a while. I just wanted to say I am deeply sorry for Carter's passing, and also, that the way you have layed all of this at the feet of the Lord, so that His will may be carried out. It is so hard when our will is so very far from His, but you have shown a true gift of grace and courage in the way you let Carter go. God bless you and your family in this the darkest of hours.

NikandDon said...

We are so sorry to hear that Carter has fulfilled his purpose in this mortal world, but as my family has learned in times of loss like this, the lessons you learn from such a small individual are enormous. He will definitely have lots of angel friends awaiting his arrival. He will be missed, loved, and thought of everyday as he watches over you and awaits your meeting once again. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you, or share with you, as you try and deal with this loss.

Some people only dream of angels, you have held one in your arms.

I'm just so sorry for your loss. I had clicked on your blog through Lacey's(Jaxson)and had started to follow your story. I finally realized yesterday when Jamie came home from work, that you were the same family he had been talking to me about. We are both just so saddened by the loss of your little guy. May God give you strength during this time.
