A Poem From Gammie

Our Angel Babies

Once upon a heaven, and not so long ago
Two precious girls were waiting for arrival here below.
They hugged each other closely with wonder in their eyes
As tiny perfect bodies formed and grew in strength and size.
They wiggled with excitement to be in a family
With kindly loving parents and a brother who was three!
Countless aunts and uncles, grandparents to adore!
So many hearts to love them!  They wanted nothing more.
What fun they’d have together! What wondrous things they’d do
With Dad and Mom and Brother--and they’d have each other, too!

Then Heavenly Father held the girls and told them of His plan
To keep them there with Him in Heaven and not on earth with man.
They looked at Him with tear-filled eyes because they wanted so
To be with their big brother and their parents here below.
“Be patient,” then the Father said, “and you will have your turn
Forever with your family--its something THEY must earn.
And when you’re reunited, and it won’t take very long,
It then will be FOREVER and all sorrow will be gone!”
So now the girls are waiting, and so obediently
To be finally with their brother and their earthly family.
Alayna and Jilinda are watching from above
And both are very anxious to embrace us with their love.
