Today is September 1, 2015. Today was suppose to be your birthday.
Mark Twain said "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." But what if you were never born? What if your life ended before you could ever celebrate a birthday?
What meaning does your short life have then?
I will tell you that it meant everything to us. You may never have drawn a breath in this world, but your life had a tremendous impact.
You brought overwhelming joy to us. You taught us an incredible love that we never knew. You brought dreams to life and hope for the future.
You were a miracle! You are a miracle. You will always be our miracle.
Your life is a gift. That is why we named you Nathan "Gift of God." You have been a gift to us from the moment you were conceived.
Our hearts are broken that we cannot celebrate your birthday today, but we can celebrate the miracle of your life.
