Our beautiful baby daughter Anabelle was born sleeping June 2010.
Blessed with the screaming arrivals of our gorgeous rainbow sons,

After Anabelle - Raising Rainbows
Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

Tuesday, 28 June 2011


A year ago today Anabelle made her final journey. Up her aisle in her Daddy's arms, through a sea of people dressed in pink just for her. She was carried up her aisle to Gymnopedie No.1 by Satie and back out to Stargazer by Hawes.  In the moments after her Daddy passed her perfect beautiful tiny little body into her bed in her garden this prayer was read out to God. Today it feels just as relevant.  A year may feel like a long time to some, but to Jon and I, handing over our daughter's little body to the ground and her little soul to God, happened only yesterday and the tears stream down as I once again listen to Stargazer, the last music I listened to with my daughter. 

Lord, (a year ago) today we sent our baby to you
Please give her wings and let her fly
She's new at this so take it slow
Teach her how they flutter by
We'll miss her so much
And we'll never know her smile
But you need her and now she's yours
She was only ours a little while
She'll never know pain
And she'll never know fear
For we know that you will keep her near
And now . . .
We close our eyes to say good bye
And watch her fly away to you
Please keep her Lord, and love her 'till
We get our wings and join you too.
