The Littlest Angel
A sad story this morning, kids. When my friend came to pick up Sebastian last night, he told me his youngest son and his wife had just lost their baby. The wife was five and a half months pregnant when the doctors discovered it was horribly compromised, with heart, liver and kidney problems so severe the baby would not make it, and the pregnancy had to be terminated.
The young couple was devastated, of course and are total wrecks right now. It was a baby girl, their first child, and they already had a nursery all ready for her.
They got to hold the baby after it was "born", and someone took a photo of her in her parents' arms. And in the photo, there was a halo around its head.
That is the part of this sad story that really blew my mind. Instantly, I said, "A baby angel!" My friend, the grandpa, nodded. He said, "I dont believe that sort of stuff - but the halo was there, as clear as day."
It was God, letting the parents know their baby had her wings, and was in Heaven.
