I am sad for Happy's family to have had to watch her suffer, but thrilled that she is in the arms of her Father!

Oh praying for all there and for Happy's parents. Oh how my heart breaks, yet may God use this to stir our hearts to act and help now before another Happy passes away. Katie thank you again for giving your all for the least of these!

We are weeping for this precious baby girl that made us so HAPPY to pray for. His plans are perfect, but we are grieving for a mommy who has to say goodbye to a part of her soul and heart. I have held a tiny boy in my arms and grieved terrible loss, but today Happy & my baby boy are playing with Jesus.
Praying fervently!!
Thank you Gwen for your loving words.
xoxo

Went to bed thinking about this sweet baby girl, Happy. Woke up thinking about this sweet baby girl and ready to be a "voice" on her behalf :)

God had such a sweeter plan in mind for Happy! She is Home and snuggling with Him.

If I could, Katie, and Gwen, I'd give you both a big old squeeze hug, but, as I sit this side of the screen gonna cover you and your ministry in prayer and thankfulness to God for Happy and those who love her!!!

God's blessings to all....

Gwen and Katie,
Man, I am so sorry. Lots of emotions right now - sorry that we couldn't help in time; thankful that Happy is healthy and with Jesus. Love to you both. Will pray for Happy's mom and wait for God to send the next precious baby for us to help.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

I have so much to say, but can't find the words. I am praying for Happy's family and friends who are mourning the loss of that precious little baby. I just want to cry, but remind myself that God is so good, and Happy is out of pain and at peace now with our Loving Heavenly Father.

Are These Kids All Yours? said...

Prayers for those of her family left behind and for all of you! She is dancing in heaven right now praising our Lord and with our Hannah Grace....around the same age too. They both had ailments that if born in this privileged country would have been treated....but God took them to be His special angels. So hard to accept sometimes.

May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding be with her family.... may they feel the comfort and healing that only Jesus can bring.

Blessed Mom of Four, Now Five said...

Oh, how my heart aches. We had special prayer tonight at VBS!

As another has written, may God us this to stir our hearts before another Happy passes away.

You will be in my prayers, dear, sweet, faithful Kati; you who have inspired others to great things, you who know no one is too small to do BIG things for Jesus.

Praying more,
Robbie

I'm so sorry to hear about Happy. She has been in my prayers and on my mind since you shared her story. I will continue to lift her family up.

I am so sorry to hear that Happy passed away. My heart just breaks for you and her family. I just started reading your blog a couple of weeks ago and am so amazed at your strength. God has given a tremendous gift to bless so many around you. Please give all of your girls a big hug from Texas and please let Happy's family know that we will continue to pray for them.

Auntie Amanda said...

That's so bittersweet. I don't even know what to say. Had been thinking alot about little Happy. Praying for those who loved her to have peace now.

David and Sarah said...

Precious, precious Happy. I have nothing profound to say, but am deeply moved for this little girl and her family. Thank you, dear Jesus, for loving your beautiful Happy.

Even though Happy got the better part of the deal, I am saddened by this news.

Mom Of Many said...

Katie,
Dw told me today about Happy as I was driving to Greeley. I started to cry....sweet baby - safe in the arms of Jesus...but how our hearts grieve...I am so, so, so sorry...thank you for loving her for the days you had her...

Much love...Linny xo

Happy is definitely one of your five. Did you ever read "The Five People You Meet in Heaven"? It always comforts me to know that when I enter heaven there will be five people that touched me deeply that will be there to lead me in. You had a profound effect on Happy's life. She'll be there, waiting to greet you, to let you know that she is now truly happy, and whole, in God's kingdom.

My dearest Katie,

You are an inspiration to the world! Every life you touch, and "holy cow" do you touch a lot of them, is changed forever.

I could never imagine someone having so much LOVE to give. You give it all kiddo, and we'll fill you back up when you arrive in the states (I can't say home anymore as I now where your home really is).

My heart is overflowing with LOVE for you.

Dad

Dave and Michelle said...

I know that Happy's experience was for you as much as you were there for her.

God receives us when our days are done like you said. He will never leave us nor forsake us says Hebrews.

Yet the changes in your heart and to a number of us getting to experience this somewhat through your posts help us to realize what REALLY is important. Thank you for being a bright shining light for our Savior.
