Dear Hannah

Dear Hannah,

My arms are aching to hold you. This is the week we were supposed to be welcoming you into this world, but instead you've been gone from me for a while now. I'm so glad you're in heaven with Jesus, but at the same time your Daddy and I wish you were here with us!

I think about you each and every day. I look at myself in the mirror and know that you should be growing inside of me, and now today you'd be ready to meet us face to face.

Daddy and I have friends and cousins who are having babies this month, and I know that every time I see those precious little ones I'll be thinking of you playing and growing with them.

I'm so thankful that Jesus is watching out for you. If you can't be here with us, you can be with the One who cares for you even more than we could! We read in the book "Heaven is for Real" that Jesus especially loves the children. I get so much comfort knowing that you're with Him and that He can help you understand how much we love you.

I will always love you and will never forget you.
