When God Calls Little Children
When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,
we mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love.
Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold,
so He picks a rosebud before it can grow old.
He knows how we need them,
and so He takes but a few,
to make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult,
still somehow we must try,
the saddest word Mankind knows will always be "Goodbye."
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind,
must realize God loves children:
"Angels are hard to find"
"For mothers who carry their children in their heart,
rather than in their arms."
So many months I carried you and I couldn't wait to see
what a wonderful little person you would turn out to be.
I had my dreams of how it would be just to watch you grow.
But now those dreams are faded Because I shall never know.
For God in His great wisdom looked from His throne above
and saw how beautiful you were, so He carried you away
with love. Now the rocking chair sits silent and the
lullabies won't be voiced. But in heaven there's a
celebration as all of the angels rejoice. My tears, they
won't be quiet, They flow like a river roars, And I
know my life is forever changed.. To be the same no more.
I must be a special mother because I've been set apart.
Some mothers carry their children in their arms, But
I carry you in my heart.

My husband and I were not planning to have another child
for a while because we were in school and trying to finish,
yet I found out I was pregnant. I was overjoyed even if
it was not planned. My pregnancy went great...no morning
sickness or any problems. Toward the end of the pregnancy
they would have trouble locating Roy's heart beart. Yet
it was always found and it would be strong. He even looked
healthy from the ultra sounds. They thought he was a girl
though. My due date was March 27, 1998, and it came and
went. Then on March 31, 1998 I went to the hospital at
5:00. They hooked me up to the monitors and kept losing
Roy's heart beat but still kept finding it. I ended up
getting an epidoral finally because I could not take the
pain any more. Around 1:00 I felt like I had to push but
was not ready and was given more meds. At 1:15 he was
born spontaneously and had the cord wrapped around his
neck three times. The doctors revived him and had him
on a ventilator. Then Roy was transferred to Children's
Hospital of Philadelphia. The next day my husband and I
went to see him and was told he really had no chance of
living even with life support and would soon die. We
spent the next few days by Roys side taking pics and
giving as many people a chance to hold and see him
including his brother Sebastian who was only 2 at the
time. We chose to take him off life support on April 3
and he died an hour later.
Roy you came and went so fast. You made me realize that
life doesn't always last. Roy I miss you so much. In a
Flash I would take you back. You now have a baby brother
as you already know and another baby one the way. I will
make sure that they know of you. I miss you and love you
Roy. Love Mom
Roy you are in a better place now...you are with our
savior Jesus. We will see you when it is our time. Until
then you are always in our hearts and minds.
