We were able to smile because we finally got to meet our son. We got to gaze upon his tiny, beautiful body... We got to see that he looked like his big brother but with a more defined chin like his father. We got to soak up his newborn baby smell and cuddle him close to our hearts...
At the same time, it was one of the darkest days of our life. It was the day we had to say, I'll see you someday in heaven", as we surrendered our son to God after just two minutes of life.
My husband and I both love this photo. In the midst of our darkest valley, Wyatt was our little ray of sunshine that guided us to God's peace in the middle of a raging storm. I think you can see the peace we felt that day in this photograph. Although June 1st will always be the day my son passed away, It will also always be the day he lived! I prefer to focus on the latter.
