Every year we celebrate her birthday by sending up balloons or writing a letter or simply having cake. This year, she gets a spot on my blog.

(Bren joined our family later)
I was very upset that they put the hands upside down at first, but now, I know that she is helping me through life.
We had this poem inscribed on the back of her headstone:
Little hands, held in mine.
Sweet tender touch, how brief the time.
Thy gift of love is given me,
to let these hands return to Thee.
Dear Savior, hear my heartfelt prayer.
Bless them with Thy watchful care.
Her little hands, until the time.
They once again are held in mine.
Happy Birthday sweet angel!
We love you ~ forever
