You don't know me, as I saw a link to your daughter's story for the first time today. But if I could I would offer you a heartfelt hug, just as women whom I did not know offered me at my dear son's grave just a few months ago.

My heart aches for you. My own dear son was born in January, 11 inches, less than 1 pound. Tiny hands and feet. And he too is with the Lord. I'm sure your little one has others who were waiting to welcome her home, but I've asked our Nikolai to watch for her and show her around.

May God hold you close and comfort you.

I wish I had the means to come to this service to give you a huge hug and tell you in person how much you, Aimee, and Kayleigh have touched my life. Thank you for opening up this service to everyone.

I haven't stopped the tears from flowing since this morning - and I will never stop the prayers.

Jenni said...

May God bless your family in this difficult time. There is no greater love than the love of a child. Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers since coming across your blog a few months ago. My heart breaks for your loss of an incredible baby girl. Kayleigh's body is no longer broken and her soul is more than alive in our hearts.

I keep thinking of you both today and your other children. Will continue with prayers. I'm just so very sorry.

Heidi said...

my heart aches for you two. I just came across Kayleigh's site here and i couldn't help but cry as i looked at the letters you wrote. My firstborn, Sierra was born 3 months early too, due to severe preeclampsia and weighed 1lb 14 oz. I remember the NICU well and all the nurses that treated her and us well. I know the joy of seeing your lil girl amazingly leap over doubts and all odds and the hearbreak and fear of the unknown of what may come. God bless you and give you strength to make it thru this new journey without your precious baby. i will be praying for you!
~hugs~

Danelle said...

How special that Kayleigh was able to hold on through Mother's Day for Aimee. Our family knows the pain of losing a precious baby although the journey was nowhere near yours, please know that are prayers are with you while our hearts bleed for you. It is an experience that doesn't seem fair, but one day we will know His greater purpose. How special to hold Kayleigh with no lines or wires, that was an amazing feeling to hold our neice even though she had already passed. Your beautiful daughter has touched so many lives and will continue to bring so many others to Him!

Continued thoughts and prayers.

Peace be with you.

Although we cannot be there at the memorial service, we will be releasing pink balloons and letters for sweet Kayleigh here in California. We will be sending photos in case you want to look back on how much we too miss sweet Kayleigh.

I wish more than anything that I could be there for Kayleigh's memorial celebration. She had the most love and prayers of anyone I have ever known and I can't wait to hear what a packed house it is going to be. What an amazing little girl she was and will continue to be in Heaven. I pray for healing and strength for not only your family, but everyone who has come into contact with Kayleigh's story. I feel so emotional about a beautiful girl I haven't even met..she was so powerful. I will keep you all in my prayers and even being in Ohio, I pray that if there is anything I can do, you will let me know.

Adam and Aimee,
I can't seem to find the words to say other than I am so sorry for your loss! I sit here today crying with you, but also rejoicing that Kayleigh is now dancing and playing in Heaven and feeling better than she ever has. Please know that Kayleigh has touched more people in her short life than most of us will in an average lifetime. That is such a blessing in itself. I, for one, have grown so much in my faith and my relationship with the Lord, thanks to your family. You guys are truly an inspiration. Your strength and courage in times such as these models such beauty and grace.

Thanks so much Kayleigh for what you have taught me and for etching your name on my heart! It will forever be there. I will hug my children a little tighter each night thinking of you smiling down on us. There were so many people in this world that loved you so much even though you never had the chance to meet them.

Adam & Aimee,
You have not left my thoughts today at all nor my prayers. I have cried to my co workers about how I have been touched by Kayleigh and how much I will miss her. I am so badly trying to find a way to come Sunday but the 12 hour drive is my problem. Oh how badly I want to tell you in person what wonderful parents you are and what a blessing you two and Kayleigh have been to me. I do have a question are you doing a funeral for kayliegh this wk before the memorial service? My love is with you and please let us know whatever you need. :)

I pray God would continue to bless, comfort, and strengthen your family through this.

thank you for inviting us to continue being a part of Kayleigh's life. We are going to try to come. We were broken hearted for you, but my daughter said it right when she said, "God just couldn't wait on Kayleigh one more day." God bless you during this time. Can't wait to see your show tomorrow. Kayleigh will continue to bless so many. please keep us updated on how you are doing! we feel so attached to you all.

Thank you for keeping us informed, even during this extremely difficult time.

I do hope that you continue to blog. I know that you will always continue to tell Kayleigh's story. I just feel like an extended family member and hope to be able to continue this journey with you.

Aimee - my heart just breaks for you especially. I hope that my son, Davenport, was there at Heaven's gate, along with all the other little angels, to welcome Kayleigh to Heaven.

Adam - I'm sure that your little girl is looking down so proudly at her daddy :)

Allyson and Brandon - you have been so strong for your mommy and step dad during this past 10 months. I hope that you both are doing well and Kayleigh was so lucky ot have such a sweet brother and sister!

Although I will not be able to make the trip, as I live in Boston, I will be sending in a donation instead, and hope that it helps.

Thank you again for providing your address. I will be thinking of you.

All my love,

God bless you and your family during this difficult time. Kayleigh is finally home...

Ashley and Gary Millward said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of loss. I can't even imagine what your family is feeling right now. I am doing what you have asked of your readers, to kiss our children many times. I am thankful for your story and your willingness to share it with the world. You are all so very amazing and strong. I am just imagining about how beautiful Kayleigh looks wrapped up in the arms of Jesus.

Although I don't personally know Kayleigh, I wish I could be at her memorial service just to tell her Thank You. She has inspired me in ways I didn't think a child I never knew could. She definitely is a special angel.

Rest in peace little Kayleigh.

Thankyou so much Aimee and Adam for keeping everyone updated throughout this especially difficult time for your family and friends.

I so wish I could attend Kayleigh's memorial, however I live in Australia so that is clearly not possible. I will certainly be there in heart though.

Your story has reached and indeed touched so many, the world over.

Take Care

I'm so sorry. I couldn't imagine, and I hope I never can. We dont have the promise of tomorrow. God says, "Boast not thyself of tomorrow, thou knowest not what a day may bring forth".

We love you and continue to pray for you.

The Hull Munchkins said...

Oh how my heart hurts for you all. Little Kayleigh is such a miracle! She fought so hard to live and has blessed so many in her 11 months. I'm so sad for you that you weren't able to take her home, even if for a short time.

Your story has touched my heart so much, probably b/c I am a fellow micro preemie mom. My dd weighed 1 lb 5 oz at 23 weeks. She has had struggle after struggle, but we love her with such a fierce love!

Praying for your family during this incredibly difficult time. Lord bless you for the testimony you have given throughout Kayleigh's life.

threeboysgee said...

I am so sorry to hear about Kayleigh, I have been following your story since Aimee first posted on Babycenter. Kayleigh will always be on my mind, your story reminds everyday to hug my kids a little tighter and pray for families who need guidance in so many different ways. I don't take anything for granted anymore, I couldn't imagine going through everything you all have gone through.
You all have amazing faith and finally Kayleigh is whole, no longer in pain, and walking along side Jesus.

God Bless you and your family.

No Ordinary Love said...

aimee and adam,

thank you for the information and addresses. i was wondering if there is a certain charity or other organization that we can make special donations in kayleigh's name, such as donating Gideon Bibles, etc. do you have any preferences? i would love to be able to donate to a specific organization or charity in her name and wondered if you had one in mind that you would like to see the money go to.

your family and kayleigh have been in my heart all day long, and for the past several months. i have offered up many prayers for all of you, and am so happy that God has given a miracle and made kayleigh whole! my grandmother passed away on jan. 29th of this year, and i asked the Lord to let her hold kayleigh's hand while she learned the ropes in Heaven. she loved babies so much and was unable to meet her newest great-grandbaby, my daughter natalie born dec. 30th. i know that she will love meeting kayleigh because they are both precious souls. i hope this hasn't been offensive in any way, but i wanted you to know that so many of us are here and crying and hurting with you, even though we cannot truly understand your feelings. however, God knows exactly how you feel because He also lost a child. if there's any consolation, know that the Lord knows what it's like and that He knows EXACTLY what you need at this time. i will continue to pray that He holds you tightly during this journey and during this time of grief.

Dawn McCabe said...

Adam and Aimee,

My heart breaks for you. I can only imagine how you must feel. While I have lost a nephew at the age of 2 due to leukemia, I have not gone through it with my own child.

We just learned Sunday that my dads cancer in uncurable and we only have 3-4 months left with him, according to the drs. I was so heartbroken and angry. I just felt sick to my stomach and like I couldnt breathe. I keep it together in front of the kids, but when night comes, I am a mess.

Your family comes into my thoughts often. I think you are amazing people. I know you are hurting and going through a very hard time right now. I have to let you know that despite that, you are my inspiration and strength right now. I just want you to know I am so thankful to you for sharing your story.

I wish I had some words to offer you but I know there are no words to take it all away. I am so happy that you got to spend the precious time you did with Kayleigh. I intend to do the same with my dad. I will be praying for you continually and I hope that you will still occasionally update on your family.

Lots of ((((HUGS)))), prayers and postive thoughts to your entire family

Sincerely,
Dawn McCabe

Words escape even the most verbose of bloggers, but you and yours are in my prayers. Thank you for sharing with such candor. It's an inspiration as we walk through a similar journey with our Rudy--one where we walk trusting God with no outcome assured.

My heart aches and tears fall for the loss of your sweet precious Kayleigh. She has touched my heart and is loved by so many people. Her journey here may have seemed like it was incomplete but she did exactly what God intended her to do. She was born to the most amazing parents and she has taught everyone about the power of love and faith. Now she is with our Heavenly Father. Kayleigh is patiently and peacefully waiting for the reunion of her wonderful family. My prayers will be with you, Aimee, Allyson and Brandon. God Bless.

I came across your blog a few days ago and was so touched by Kayleigh's story. I lost my own daughter Emma when she was 4 days old to MIDAS syndrome and Hypoplastic left heart syndrome. I want to thank you for sharing your story...I know how heartbreaking it is but you may never realize how many lives you and little Kayleigh have touched. I am living all the way in Stuttgart,Germany and so I can only imagine how far reaching her story will be. As I have said in my blogs on MySpace about my daughter Emma and the same can be said about Kayleigh...these tiny little girls in their short lives on this Earth touched and changed so many lives. They had a reason and purpose for being in this world. They may have left sooner than we as parents would have wanted but God's timing is not our timing. I know how heartbroken you and your wife are and I will be praying for you to feel some peace and comforting during this time. Hold onto each other and to your other two children because that is what is going to help you to get through each day.

Take care...you will be in my prayers. Melissa Moss (melissamoss79@live.com)

I just heard about your story through a friend and just read your blog. Tears are pouring from my eyes, what an amazing and beautiful journey you have had and the faith you have in the Lord. Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you losing your sweet and precious Kayleigh, yet I have hope in my heart that she is overjoyed sitting in the arms of our saviour. I will be praying for you all, the Lord bless you with an overwhelming sense of peace and comfort through this! Jenny, AZ

My family and I would love to have been able to make it to sweet Kayleigh's memorial. Although you are only 3 hours away, we will be out of state later this week, and sadly cannot make it.

I will wear pink on Sunday in honor of Kayleigh, and you will be in my family's thoughts and prayers.

I have some very special angels up in heaven who I know will watch over Kayleigh until you can be with her again. My heart goes out to you and your family. My 4 yr old told me, Mommy, Kayleigh is our angel now and she is all better now. It's amazing the understanding that kids have. Aimee, I will say a special prayer for you from one Mommy to another. God Bless,

I've been following your blog for a few weeks now and am SO sorry to hear about your loss of your dear sweet Kayleigh... I was watching the Doctors this afternoon and THOUGHT I saw a blurb that sounded like your story, so I set Tivo to record it! :) I wish I could come and be part of this wonderful celebration of life, but I'm too far away. Never forget how many lives you've touched by sharing your story... may your hearts be healed in time. You will be in my prayers.

I wish i could be there for you at this time, but unfortunatly that isn't possible.Please know that i will be there in prayer. I hope you will have someone there to maybe record the service for all of us around the world that love her and wish we could be there. Its just an idea, i understand thats not at the top of your priorities at this time.

i have the timer on my tv set for your show tomorrow.

i just want to add that i hope you still keep us updated on your life as you have. I want to know that her life is being lived out by you and your family.

With love,

Analiza has a beautiful idea. We also will release pink balloons on Sunday in memory of Kayleigh since we cannot be there from Iowa. We will send pictures so you can keep a scrapbook of how many lives Kayleigh has touched. Prayers for peace..

I wish I could be there but as I live in Australia I will be thinking of you all and will be there in spirit.

Adam, Aimee, Allyson & Brandon,

My heart broke when my computer loaded this page. I cannot find the words to say, as I'm sure no one can, but please know that I am still praying, and will continue to pray for all of you. Though I've never met any of you, you have all been a huge part of my life for the passed 9 months that I have been following Kayleigh's story. I love your little girl so much and I am devastated feeling what I imagine must be only a fraction of your pain. God did and does have a purpose with Kayleigh's life, and her story has reminded me every day of the miracles God can and does create. Your strength and faith is inspirational and you are truly doing God's work with your blog and dedication to telling her story. Kayleigh will be in my heart always.

I will be at the life celebration in spirit on Sunday, unfortunately Prince George, BC is just too far away for me to go. Please know that Kayleigh was and is loved by so many people across the globe ... though she didn't live long, she lived big in that regard.

How precious that she got to snuggle so closely with you both and that you got to see the wind in her peach fuzz.

God bless you and hold you during this difficult time,

Cherilynn

My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. A friend sent me Kayleigh's story today and I have been crying since. So sad for a child to go to Heaven so soon. God bless your family.

I have been following your story just for a few weeks now and was devestated to log on today and receive your news. My prayers are with you and Kayleigh. What a beautiful little girl. I know she is dancing with the angels now. They will forever take care of her. She is at peace now. May time one day heal your pain. For now, know the world mourns with you. Bless you sweet Kayleigh Anne.

I am not going to be able to be in the memorial service for sweet Kayleigh. All day Sunday I will be praying for your family and I'll be there in spirit. You are such a strong family and God will guide you through this hard time. I agree that Kayleigh is in heaven, completely healed and walking hand in hand with Jesus.

God Bless you!

What a GREAT idea to let off pink balloons (I read from an earlier comment). I'm going to steal that idea too and let a pink balloon bouquet fly to heaven just as Kayleigh did in memory of her on Sunday.

I will wear pink & brown! And so will my baby girl!

Adam, thank you to you & Aimee & Kayleigh and your other children for opening your hearts and your home to us so we could all get to share in Kayleigh's life. We will miss her and we wish you the very best as you get through each day. I hope you will have your mail forwarded to your new home just in case we can't get something in the mail to you before May 23rd. You don't have to post your address but please do have your mail forwarded so we can continue to support you in the coming weeks.

The tribute on The Doctors website is very sweet. Congratulations again on getting Kayleigh's story out to so many people. She was an amazing little girl and it's truly appropriate that her first "mission" will be to share her story on such a popular national tv show. She will continue to do her work from up above and I know she's smiling down on you. I'm proud of her!

I have only visited your site a couple of times and have been so touched by your story. My heart and prayers are with you. This is one of my favorite verses and thought that it may be of some comfort for you.
[God says], do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
- Isaiah 41:10

I am so very sorry for your precious loss.

Adam and Aimee,
I have been thinking about your family all day. I'm so sorry for your loss. Heaven has definitely been blessed with a very special angel. She has a wonderful babysitter to watch over her until you are all reunited together again one day. Aimee, I'm so happy that Kayleigh got to spend her first Mother's Day with you. I have to believe she was holding long enough to spend this special with her mommy. Kayleigh has touched so many lives and her story will live on forever thanks to your beautiful blog!!

A poem in honor of your beloved Angel Kayleigh:

Perhaps God is a poet who writes with words of flesh and bone and leaf and flower. Every hour of every day, words pour out of the poet's heart, and every word is beautiful and true and worth the telling. And when each poem is perfect and there is no more which ought to be said, the poet gently takes the words back into his heart, where they are safe forever . . . and then begins again.

These song lyrics I heard this morning reminded me of you:

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and past where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones, waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
"Don't worry about me"

I like many others would love to come and Celebrate Kayleigh's life but I live in Mississippi and will not be able attend, but i would love to be able to do something to share Kayleigh's story with someone, If it is ok with You and Aimee if those of us that are unable to be at the service could release pink balloons with a card with Kayleigh's blog address inside so that when someone finds it they would be able to see what an Awesome & Beautiful Little Girl Kayleigh is. I also sent you an email.

I don't even know you IRL, but my heart is broken for you and for Kayleigh. I wish I could ease your pain somehow, but I know there's nothing I can do/say except pray, but I did want to share with you Kayleigh's impact on my life. I live too far away to attend the memorial, but I want you to know that God really touched my heart through Kayleigh and began to teach me what it really means to live. I prayed with all my might for a miracle for your sweet girl, but I know that God had better plans for her that I can't even understand. I can't imagine how hard the coming time will be for your family, but I pray that God will give you some measure of comfort and strength, and that God would show you the best way for Kayleigh's legacy to live on.
I recently read a book by church leader Henri Nouwen called "Life of the Beloved" - I would recommend it to you, if only for the section on being "given" for the sake of the world - death, in other words. It isn't a book about losing a child, but the teaching that it has about death is the most inspiring I've ever read - I have never lost a child, but maybe it would also bring comfort? If you ever feel like trying it someday, it's an easy, short read; I imagine it will be some time before you're able to concentrate again. Take time to grieve your loss -- grief is a sign of love, not a lack of faith/trust in eternal life. Take care of yourselves and each other, and may God bless you.

We are unable to be there Sunday but will have your family and sweet Kayleigh in our thoughts.

I could write so much but at this time, I feel there are no words you do not already know because of your faith and love you carry for your family and for Kayleigh.

May you find peace and comfort knowing Kayleigh is a perfect little Angel as she always was, but now without the pain.

I'm SOOO very sorry that you've lost your precious angel. I haven't commented much, but I have been following, and have been praying for Kayleigh and for you! My prayer now is for comfort for you, in the faith of seeing her again one sweet day.

Kayleigh touched more hearts in her short time than most people can in 100 years.

I don't know what God's Plan is but I know that the world is a better place for having Kayleigh in it, if only for a short time.

None of her work could have been done without your help, Thank you for sharing her story with the world.

We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Words can not express the sorrow I am feeling for all of Kayleigh's family. I am so sorry for your loss but I find comfort in knowing that Kayleigh is in the most beautiful place imaginable and is looking down on her family and smiling because she knows she is loved more than anything on Earth.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Rest in peace, sweet Kayleigh...you will never be forgotten.
