18 Months...A Letter to my Daughter Cadence

Dear Sweet Cadence Alana, my beautiful melody, my little dancer in the womb. How I miss you baby girl. A year and a half is too long to go without seeing your face. You were the sixth born and the tiniest of all the babies, but wow you were feisty. If you were still with us now, I do believe that you and Sylas would have been my little partners in crime. I'm so proud to be called your mommy, Cadence. Thank you for staying with us for 13 beautiful days. Every moment spent with you was a dream come true. Daddy and I will carry you in our hearts forever and we can't wait for the day when we will hold you again. Until then, missing you...

Love,
Mommy



Cadence's Song*
By Daddy

Baby Butterfly
Flying so far and free
Lay to rest your little wings
Fly now to me

Fly now to me
Fly now to me
Kiss on Daddy's cheek
Fly now to me

Baby Butterfly
Now it's time for sleep
Tomorrow you'll fly again
But fly now to me

Fly now to me
Fly now to me
Kiss on Mommy's cheek
Fly now to me

Fly now to me
Fly now to me
Kiss on Baby's cheek
Fly now to me
Butterfly now to sleep

*Ryan wrote this song out of a place of great hope the day before Cadence passed away. We had just been told that our tiny little Cadence was on the mend. Little did we know that when Ryan penned the words "Tomorrow you'll fly again," she wouldn't be flying to us, but straight into the arms of our Savior.

P.S. I'm sorry for the word verification step, but oh, my. I'm getting lots of spam.
