God has placed so many wonderful people in my life since I found out Wyatt would not be mine to keep. People I wish I could have met under infinitely happier circumstances. It's bittersweet to think that our babies brought us together, but that they had to die to achieve it.
One of the beautiful women my life has been blessed with is Celia. This sweet lady lost her son Noah Benjamin to anencephaly just three and a half months ago. Her blog Beauty from Pain is such an inspiration to me. Please head over to her blog and meet her beautiful family. Noah was such a handsome little man, I guarantee you will blessed if you take the time to read her families' story.
Celia went to Myrtle Beach this past week with her family, and I was in awe to open an e-mail and find these...
Just when I was feeling like the rest of the world had forgotten him, God reminds me through a treasured new friend that he will never be forgotten by the people who really matter.
Thank you so much Celia for a gesture that means the world to me. Most importantly, thank you for your friendship. I treasure you, and your act of kindness greatly. It's so beautiful to see my son's name written (anywhere) in this world, especially a beach (I'm a true Florida native)! It makes it even more special knowing this beautiful heartfelt gift, came from a heart that is as completely broken as mine. It amazes me how a heart can be so broken yet still contain so much love. I'm honored you chose to share some of that love with me!
