To the Angel Mothers who may be reading...

I know that some of you have links on your blogs to Angie's blog for her Audrey Caroline, so you may have heard this before. But for those of you who haven't I wanted to share this song. Angie's husband, Todd, is a member of the Christian music group Selah, and they wrote this song for Audrey shortly after she died. It describes it all perfectly.

BE PREPARED TO CRY! (lyrics first, and then a video made for Audrey after)

I Will Carry You

There were photographs I wanted to take
Things I wanted to show you
Sing sweet lullabies, wipe your teary eyes
Who could love you like this?

People say that I am brave but I'm not
Truth is I'm barely hanging on
But there's a greater story
Written long before me
Because He loves you like this

So I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All my life
And I will praise the One Who's chosen me
To carry you

Such a short time
Such a long road
All this madness
But I know
That the silence
Has brought me to His voice
And He says...

I've shown her photographs of time beginning
Walked her through the parted seas
Angel lullabies, no more teary eyes
Who could love her like this?

I will carry you
While your heart beats here
Long beyond the empty cradle
Through the coming years
I will carry you
All your life
And I will praise the One Who's chosen Me
To carry you

I love this song. I have been waiting for the release of it! She had mentioned a while back that it would be coming out. It is my all time favorite. They also have a boy version dedicated for her nephew.
