Missing My Girl


Magdalena and Me Napping Together



Papa's Poem to Sweet Magdalena:

SHE WAS SENT HERE FROM HEAVEN
WITH A MISSION INDEED
SHE WAS CHOSEN ABOVE
OTHER SOULS COULD EASILY LEAD

OTHER SOULS WHO WERE BRIGHT
BOTH HAPPY AND SMART
HE HAD SENT THOSE BEFORE
BUT THEY CHANGED SO FEW HEARTS

SHE WAS SENT IN A PACKAGE
SO FRAGILE TO TOUCH
BOUND WITH WHAT OTHERS
WOULD SAY IS TOO MUCH

A CLOCK THAT WAS TICKING
NO TIME COULD BE LOST
PEOPLE BEGAN PRAYING
NO MATTER THE COST

IT STARTED WITH A FAMILY
ALL DOWN ON THEIR KNEES
SOON THERE WERE FRIENDS
ALL BEGGING GOD PLEASE

A PASTOR AND STAFF
WOULD FALL IN LINE
WITH FRIENDS TELLING FRIENDS
IT'S NOW PRAYING TIME

CHURCH AFTER CHURCH
WOULD ADD THEIR KNEES TOO
PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T KNOW HER
NOT EVEN A CLUE

MAGDALENA BROUGHT US ALL
TOGETHER IN LOVE
BOUND TOGETHER FOREVER
WITH A GOD SENT SOUL FROM ABOVE

THANK YOU LORD FOR
EACH MOMENT SHE IS HERE
MAY GOD KEEP TOUCHING
THOSE HEARTS FAR AND NEAR

LOVE, PAPA

  4. Hi Julie. My name is Carrie Miley. I go to MHBC. Anyway, ive been thinking about you lately. I am pregnant with baby #3 (girl) that we just discovered has an omphalocele (some organs growing outside her body). But I am getting my amnio this Thursday to see if she has a chromosomal abnormality (trisomy 13 and 18 are most common in these cases). She has a 50% chance of having this on top of the omphalocele and other defects. But just wanted to tell you that you are an inspiration to me and remind me to stay strong in the Lord. He is my only peace. We are optimistic but won't know results until mid march. Even if there are no chromosomal problems, we are still looking at weeks in the NICU and multiple surgeries to push the organs back in. So thank you for sharing your story. It helps to know other people have gone through similar situations. Praying for your family.
