Audrey's Story.

I remember when I first got into blogging I came across Angie Smith's blog. She was expecting her fourth daughter at the time. Unfortunately, her sweet Audrey Caroline passed away 2 1/2 hours after birth. The one aspect that I find awe-inspiring of the Smith family was how they never gave up hope! There was not for one second any doubt that a miracle could not happen from the time of diagnosis to her passing.

Today is Audrey's 2nd birthday. The video below is Angie's creation that she made as a legacy to Audrey. Audrey's story has had a profound effect on me and she really takes me breath away. I have only watched it a couple of times and it leaves me in tears for a little baby who stole so many hearts :)

Please take the time to watch this beautiful story that is still being written.

"This is our beautiful fourth daughter Audrey Caroline, and we marvel at the miracle that she was to us, even in just 2 1/2 hours. God never sees the story broken and in pieces the way we do; He sees it as part of the magnificent tapestry of our lives, bringing Him the glory He deserves. " - Angie Smith, (Audrey's proud Mum :)

May peace be with you today and always.

I am so glad you posted this Rebecca. I was left very choked up but what a beautiful baby! I hope today is a day of celebration for them, a celebration for the life of a sweet baby who has most definitely taken my breath away.

Angie's was the first blog I followed too. I don't even think I made it all the way through the video the first time I watched it. I was a bit of a wreck. Beautiful video though. And I'm so happy that little Charlotte will be making her debut soon. What a wonderful family.

That must have been so hard - but I love the quote at the end. What a wonderful outlook to have in the face of something so tragic! I'll be praying for them.
