Letter to Jonathan from Daddy

Dear Angel Son Jonathan Mitchell,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for coming into our life. You have given us a new understanding of what it means to live, to love and to be a family.

Your life here was short but your are truly loved by so many people. Even though you are not with us physically I know that you are on my shoulder and we will always keep you in our hearts.

Your big brother Grayson will know you, and will love you just as we do. Last night I framed your baby photo to put in the living room and Grayson could not keep giving you kisses. It makes me so happy to know that I was important enough to have been given an Angel baby, and I am so happy that you choose us. Jaimey and I both are so glad that we were able to have you, and to give you all of the love that we could, and that we could give you life. You deserved to be loved and we truly love you.

Both your Mother and I may both have moments of sadness, but neither one of us would ever have asked for it to be any differently. We may not understand, but we both know that your purpose was served in this life, and all that we can do now is continue to love you and remember you for as long as we can live.

I know now that I have a angel on my shoulders for the rest of my days. I will do my best to make you proud;

Proud of the father I am to your brothers and sisters,
Proud of the Husband that I am to your Mommy
and proud of the man that I am in the world.

Good by sweet angel baby, you have touched the hearts of so many and we will forever be grateful for the impact that you have had on our lives.

Love Your Daddy.

I just got home and went to check a reply to this not realizing that Daddy had posted it. What an amazing gift I have been given to have such an amazing husband and father to my children. I love you a little bit more every day. Thank you for being as unbelievably amazing as you are. I am so thankful for you.

Zack and Jaimey,

I was sent this blog some time ago and have been reading it since. Your family and the things you write on here are so honest and I find I check it everytime I get on the computer. I wish I could be there for you physically but I am here for you and have said many prayers for you and your family. I wanted you both to know that I love you and I am very proud of you both.
