Love, Your Guardian Angel

My darling little sister,

You do not know me, little sister, but I know you. I am your guardian angel.

You see, little sis, Momma and Daddy wanted you for so long. Oh, so long.

I know Momma has explained to you that I am in heaven watching over you and you know what?

I really love you.

I left to be in heaven because God needed me. He needed me up here to be with you at all times, to protect you when you are sick and to watch over you when you are sleeping.

Momma and Daddy wanted you for two years. I was in heaven waiting for those two long years. When I went to heaven Momma cried so hard. Daddy wiped her tears away.

I gave her hugs and kisses. I heard her tell me she loved me even though we never met face to face.

After seeing how hurt Momma was I talked to God. I told him my family needed an earth angel.

Each month Momma grew sadder and sadder. She started losing faith. She couldn't understand why I was in heaven and why there wasn't a child in her arms.

I then spoke to her one night while she was sleeping. I whispered in her ear you were on your way. When she awoke she thought she had dreamed about me giving her the message; that it wasn't real.

But it was real. I was right there by her side.

When Momma found out you were coming I was right there by her side holding onto her. I was with her when she read about you in baby books, I was with her when she found out you were a girl, I was with both of you as you entered into the world.

Momma wanted you so bad and I knew this was the best gift that she could be given. She needed you. She was ready to wipe someone else's tears and give them big hugs when they were sad.

So my little sister on your ten month birthday, I have a message for you.

I love you. I love you for being my sister. I love you for making Momma not cry anymore.

Happy 10 month birthday, Isabella. You are one very loved and wanted little girl.

Love always,
Your Guardian Angel

Tears are rolling down my cheeks... I have a handful of friends who have experienced miscarriage within the past year or so. It's been heartbreaking. How comforting it must be to know your "earth angel" is being watched over by her angelic big sister. Beautiful post.
