I was sent an email the other day entitled “Something for your family”. I opened it and followed the directions that sent me to YouTube.com. I was instructed to type in “For Noah’s Family”. Here is what I found, and what else could I do but share it with you…
Emily and I sat and watched this video, repeatedly. She sat on my lap and leaned back on my chest. She would look from the computer to my face, and then proceed to wipe the tears off her arms that were flowing from my eyes. Immediately she said, “We need to email them right now and thank them.” Later that night, as I tucked Em into bed, you can bet that “The Adventures of Emily and Noah” included Scarlet, River, and their sweet little brother, Christian…and some kangaroos.
There are many things I enjoy having in common with other people…the death of a child is not one of them. I wish we were the only people on earth to have lost a child, but we aren’t. We weren’t the first ones and we won’t be the last. I hate that anyone has this in common with us, but it is because of this reality that we’ll continue to share, I will keep on writing, and we will never stop offering God’s love and hope with anyone that will listen.
Thank you, Carly!
