From Adrienne:

My sweet baby Mia,

There will be no more hearts and rainbows. No more butterflies and unicorns.
No more mermaids and fairy dust. The sun will never feel as warm.
Chocolate will never taste as sweet. The stars will never shine as brightly.
For your light has gone from this earth.

You will never learn to ride a two-wheeler,
But you will always be our strongest, bravest girl.
You will never wear your hair in long flowing braids,
But you will always be the most beautiful girl.
You will never ride on the school bus with Andrew,
But you will always be the best big sister.

You will never read those unfinished books,
But you will always love school and learning.
You will never open some of your birthday presents,
But you will always have the wonderful friends who gave them to you.
You will never have a Christmas with us again, But you will always believe in Santa Claus.

You will never get the chance to grow up and reach your dreams,
But you will always have done so much.
You will never grow to be an artist or a vet,
But you will always love art and animals.
You will never be a teacher or a mommy,
But you will have taught us all about life and love and you will always be our daughter and Andrew’s sister.
I will always be your mommy.

We will never look into your sparkling big brown eyes again,
But we will always see you in our hearts.
We will never hear your big belly laugh again,
But we will always remember the joy you gave us.
We will never see your radiant smile with little dimple again,
But you will always be the light in our lives.

You will always be our Mia.
You will always be an inspiration to us all.
You will always be our miracle.
We will always be a family.
We will always miss you. Our hearts will always be broken.

Mommy and Daddy and Andrew will love you forever and always.
