It's been four years since I became a mother to our first daughter Kiarra. I can't say that each year gets easier because it doesn't. Since I had Kiarra I've always felt that I needed to do something in honor of her, but also for other families who have gone through and experienced what my family has. I feel like by doing his it will help me remember her and not forget her, but make her proud. I have a few ideas, one of which is going to take a long time, but I know when it does happen it will be amazing and bless the lives of so many other families. Every year on her birthday we go to the cemetery and decorate her grave and spend the rest of the day with family. This year her birthday also fell on the night of The General Relief Society Broadcast that my church does every year for women 18 years and older. It's amazing to me how our Father in Heaven really knows us and knows what we need. This broadcast was everything I needed to hear and be reassured of. I felt like it was meant for me. What a blessing it is to be surrounded by loving family and friends who do so much for our little family and each year show extra love to us on this sad/special day. My little girl I love you so very much! Until we meet again! Thank you for making me a mom, I hope I'm making you proud!!
