In the arms of Jesus

Almost one year ago God gave me the opportunity to hold a precious little girl who gained her angel wings today.  She was so frail and emotionless as she watched the others play and toddle around the room. In that crowded toddler room, in an orphanage on the other side of the world I cradled her in my arms and prayed over her and begged the God of heaven to send a family for her.  He heard our prayers and sent a family.  One who loved and cherished her and did their very best to make sure she knew she was loved in return.  As I reflect on the moments I had with her, I feel as though God gave me a glimpse of heaven and allowed me to hold one of His angels.  Precious Kya's heart condition was just too severe for her to survive the surgery she would need.

Even though my tears flowed at the thought of her little life gone far too soon, I thank my God for allowing me the blessing of loving His precious child and for letting her know she was loved while in her short time here.

You will be glad to know God heard our pleas.  Kya was in our arms when the machines were turned off and she stormed the gates of heaven.  She lasted two minutes before she breathed her last and struggled no more.

And just so you know, we'd do it all over again if we had to.  We love our bear.
(The above message is from her mommy)

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14
