Sweet Sweet Baby Jayla

Dear Baby Jayla,

You came to us a little early, but you were such a fighter.  What a blessing it was to get to hold you before we were supposed to.  The Lord had a plan for you (for us).  He temporarily separated us from your brothers and sister so we could spend precious time with you in the NICU.  He made us realize how blessed we are to have children (to have you).  He taught us that life truly is a miracle.  He taught us patience.  He taught us how to listen to Him.  He taught us how to really trust Him.  He taught us how much others really care.  Oh, how I am so thankful for all that I have learned through Him (through you)!  Our loving savior knew exactly what he was doing when he brought you to us a little early.  He was molding us.  He was testing us.  Thank you Jesus for your love.  Thank you Jesus for molding us.  Thank you Jesus for our sweet Baby Jayla.

My love for you, Baby Jayla, is indescribable.  If I can love you this much, I can’t imagine how much Jesus loves you (loves us)!  We all love you.  How do I know?


(I was glad after you finally learned how to nurse!)

You are a miracle who has changed all of us!  We love you sweet baby, and we are so blessed because you are here.

Hugs and kisses!
