Hi Emma

(author warning...k)

I wish I could write Emma a note, you know, something simple like...

Dear Emma,

Hi baby girl! How was your day today? Did you have fun? Are you getting to run and laugh and sing?

(ten minute pause for crying)

Anyhow, I just wanted write and tell you how much I love you and miss you. I hope Jesus is giving you all the messages and hugs we tell him every night in our family prayers. If He is not hugging you like we are asking him to do, just let me know and I'll talk to him about it. We have been pouring over all of your pictures. You are so pretty.

(five minute pause for crying)

So, I still get sick at my stomach every time we get in the car and I count out loud "Everyone buckled in...1...2...3..."...STOP, just three. Four sounded so much better. I miss you. Well better go for now, the rest of the fam is about to be home. I love you Emma. I hope you have sweet dreams about catching butterflies on the beach.

Love always and forever,


  1. I've been reading your blog for a few months after finding you through the Betzes and I am sure Emma's getting some unbelievable hugs in Heaven!

  2. I am crying. that was such a sweet post.

  3. Kelvin, I hope you can imagine a Dear Daddy response, at least in your own mind.

  4. Praying.
    If only Emma was able to write you, she would have amazing stories to tell.
    Know that she is being loved and absolutely cared for and can run and play with boundless joy.
    Praying that God would comfort and fill your heart and give you a glimpse of all precious Emma is experiencing now.
    Love and hugs and prayers,

  5. You're such an amazing daddy. Your kids are so very lucky. You and Christy have set the bar high for the rest of us.

  6. I don't know how you do it! Praying for you all the time!!!


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
