Can I keep him?

Just wanted to write a quick post, about something my 3 1/2 year old daughter said today. She is so anxious for this baby, we all are. It seems surreal that we will be welcoming a healthy baby into our family this fall. Just in time for Caleb's 1 year angelversary! Well, Kailey was giving my tummy the usual hugs and kisses this afternoon. Then she asked if brother was coming in the fall, I said "Yes, before your birthday!" Then she replied, " Can I keep him?" My eyes filled with tears. At such a young age, she has already had to see that bad things happen. She has a brother in Heaven that she never got to meet, never got to hold and kiss.I just looked at her and gave her a hug. "Yes, sweetie. You can keep him."


  1. I almost cried tonight at dinner when you told me that. I can't wait to meet this baby boy.

  2. Sweet baby girl. A child so small shouldn't have to grieve so big. Love to you all.

  3. Such a sweet little girl! Thinking of you and your family often.

  4. I remember my oldest asking the same thing when we were expecting Luke...their innocence has been lost through the great hurt they have witnessed but the character that has been formed is amazing!!! God uses it all for his glory!
    Enjoy this sweet boy...he is a gift from heaven...the One who holds it and the sweet little angel of yours that lives there.
