Letter to Felicity

Our Dearest Felicity,

We never thought we'd be writing a letter telling you good-bye before we ever really got to say hello. We wish you were in our arms right now, but instead you're being cradled in Jesus' arms. We love you, our precious baby girl and we waited so long to meet you! We now wish we would have treasured those moments while you were in Mommy even more!

You are so beautiful! We are going to miss you every day! We are going to miss all your firsts: firsts smile, first steps, first words, and especially the moment when you would have trusted in Jesus as your Savior. Ethan and Elijah are going to miss you too and we know they would have protected and loved you like only big brothers could.

We are so thankful that you are with Jesus. We long for the day when we will be able to see you again; to see you smiling and laughing and welcoming us home. Our hearts will never be fully complete until we are all together, but for now, we pray that God will give us "joyful faith" for the rest of our days on earth.

Until we are all together with Jesus, we love you!

Daddy, Mommy, Ethan, and Elijah
This marks the one week anniversary of Felicity's arrival and departure from this world! Help us Lord!
