Keepsake.

This is a keepsake. Given to me by the Social Worker at the hospital where Carly passed away. It's a porcelain heart on a thin gold cord (I think I will be buying a chain). The open heart had a solid heart within it, it was on smaller thin golden cord. That smaller heart, was for Carly. We had it tied to her tiny little wrist and had the heart placed so that she was holding part of that heart within her tiny little hand. The reason it was not place around her neck was because she wore her "Angel" 14K gold necklace that was given to her by a friend at her End of Chemo Party.


This keepsake is such a treasure. Knowing that my girl has the other part of that heart. Just as she will always have part of my heart. Forever!

It's beautiful. I continue to pray for you. I made a blog button for your Carly. I placed it on my blog for you so when you are ready, please feel free to ask me for the code. I hope you like it. It is my gift to you.

Blessings.

ohhhhhhhhhhh my heart is there too, and my eyes are weepy as I look at this.

This is such a beautiful gift, I will remember the health workers who care for the parents, as well as the patients when I say my prayers.

Know that you are loved by all of us, near and far away.

You remain in my heart, too.

I'm praying your family can find comfort in knowing God has a plan, just like He did in giving you Carly. I'm praying or strength and peace for you. I simply cannot imagine your pain and loss. It makes me want to go the bed of each of my sleeping children, kiss them and say a prayer. Praayers
