Happy 13th Birthday….A Letter to Kate

Sweet Kate,

Today you would turn 13 and be a teenager.

Somedays it seems just like yesterday we welcomed you into this world.

You made us a mommy and daddy.

You changed our world.

We do not know why God only gave you to us for such a short time but I know His ways are better than ours, just like the Bible tells us in Isaiah 55.

You have taught me so much.  I know that what I have learned from your loss helped me last year so much through my cancer journey.

You have allowed me to minister to other mommies that have little ones in heaven too.

You are so loved my sweet Kate.

Your little sister loves to celebrate your birthday!   There was a gift on our porch yesterday from Ms. Sherry and Ms. Alesha and  E was so excited like she is every year and went ahead and claimed it, she claims it every year actually:)

We miss you.  I often wonder what you would be like. I know you are in a much better place and I know one day we will all be together again.

I hope you have a wonderful celebration with Jesus and your friends this year.

Mommy and Daddy and E love you very much!!

Happy Birthday Sweet Kate!!!


Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.   Psalm 139:16 .

  1. I can hardly believe it’s been 13 years. What a blessing Kate has been to so many. Her short life still gives hope and courage to so many people. I know you can’t wait to see her one day. What a day that will be!!!
