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.

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

My husband David and I are profoundly sorry that you have come in search of information here, because that means you are facing a difficult road. Just know that you are not alone…and that you’ve come to the right place. Alexandra’s House is a wonderful haven for families and babies facing difficult challenges.

Everyone’s story is unique, as each precious life is. David and I just want to provide you with some information and knowledge that was helpful to us.
