What did carrying Riley to term give me?

After speaking to Patti on the phone I started thinking about what carrying Riley to term gave to us.

Three years latter it is easier to see that the time with Riley was a blessing beyond compare. I wanted to share my thoughts with you to use as the Lord leads you.

Payton’s Story by her Mommy and Daddy

Payton touched more people in her eight months (and two days) than most of us will in our whole life. She was such a little fighter; there wasn’t a day that she didn’t struggle just to stay with us.

Dear Andrew and Amber

I will lend you for a little moment a child of mine
For you to love while she lives a little time.
She will be with you a few months you shall see
But please take care of her until I take her back with me
She will bring her charms to gladden you, and her stay will be brief
You will have her lovely memories as comfort for your grief.
I cannot promise how long she will stay, since all from earth have to return
But there are lessons she will bring for you all to learn
