Last Easter was the happiest Easter that I can remember. Caroline was dressed in a sparkly, fluffy dress adorned with flowers and we propped her in the corner of the couch for pictures. The pictures that we captured that day showed Caroline in the most alert state that she had been in since we left the hospital.
Easter meant so much more than it ever had before. We knew that our time in this world with Caroline was limited and Jesus’s story gives us hope that we will be reunited in heaven. I also identified with Mary in a way that I never had before. She knows what it is like to lose a child. To wish that you could die so that your baby could live.
Last Easter, we celebrated the amazing gift of Caroline’s life and the unexpected time we were able to share with her. She is our greatest blessing.
