Angel Babies

October 18, 2009. The day that Cade and Dillon were born into this world, having already departed to the arms of God.

What was to be joyful and a double blessing – became double sadness, double heartbreak. Little angels were lovingly held while mom, dad, grandparents said good bye and came to grips with the fact there wouldn’t be birthday parties, only the anniversary marking the day life would forever change because of these two boys.

Little hands, little feet – the tiniest ever – were cradled tenderly and placed into the care of the nurse angels assigned to watch over every detail after their birth.

October 31, 2009. The day that Cade and Dillon were laid to rest in the family burial spot in a beautiful section of Mount Pleasant. It seemed a contradiction in the day. The shone gloriously and the world was blanketed by leaves of all colours. Their little feet will never shuffle through them – but their spots forever wil be marked at this time of year by the blanket.

We shared some beautiful words and many thoughts together as we gathered on that day in the saddest of circumstances.

Those little babies will only know Heaven’s lullabies, sung by angel caregivers. They are surrounded by the love of God in the place where we all strive to be.

They leave behind hurting parents and huge holes in our hearts for such tiny bodies. Tears are a language that God truly understands. Cade and Dillon are now little angel babies in Heaven with Him.

We miss you boys!
