Three years ago today we lost our precious Samuel. My sweet boy who loved to cuddle with me. Alex's "twin", his best friend, his brother in arms. There still isn't a day that goes by that we don't think of Samuel and all he meant to us. These days we think of him much more often with laughs and smiles then with tears as we remember some silly thing he did or said or some trouble the boys managed to get into together.
As I watch Alex thrive these days, Samuel often comes to mind. I have such mixed up emotions. I am always sad for all the experiences he won't have. I ache for Missy and Ben and the moments they are missing with him. But, I also think of him with such a grateful heart. Many changes came about in Alex's care as the doctors evaluated what more could be done for Alex that might have led to a different outcome for Samuel. I believe that God's plan is perfect. I believe that this angel came into our lives and changed us. I believe that this angel continues to watch over my Bug everyday and I am sure he is looking down with a BIG smile on his face as he sees all that Alex is accomplishing.
We love you, little man!
