Merry Christmas Kayleigh


Kayleigh,

You are 3 years old this Christmas and if you were here, I would probably be watching you impatiently sit at the top of the stairs, waiting for the go ahead to come down and open your presents from Santa. I can hear your soft whimper as you pout, "Is it time Daddy?"

I can imagine how my overprotective self would come running up the stairs to pick you up so you didn't fall down the steps in a mad dash. A glimmer of excitement would come across your face, turning off the trickles of tears, knowing it was time to see what was waiting for her by the Christmas tree.

I would set your squirming little body down and with a brief pause of a moment, your eyes would be wider than ever before. A smile builds upon your face and before I could say, "Go ahead," you bolt to the biggest gift hiding behind the Christmas tree. What would it be??? A rocking horse like her Daddy had when he was little or her first red and white tricycle? Knowing how spoiled she would be, she'd probably get both.

While watching you open your gifts and cover the whole downstairs completely with pink and brown wrapping paper, I would sit in amazement at how lucky I am to have the most adorable little girl. I wouldn't have to open a single gift because my gift is opening her own.

Kayleigh, you are the best present I could ever receive. You have given me the gift of love and have taught me the gift of giving. Your heart is bigger than anything in this world and you continue to give faith, hope and love to everyone who knows you. You have taught me and so many others to give from your heart, whether it is Christmas or not. You're such a blessing and I am beyond grateful and proud to be your Daddy.

Days continue to pass on and instead of crying my eyes out that you are no longer here, it just reminds me that I am one more Christmas closer to holding you in my arms again.

We all love and miss you so much sugar bear!

Merry Christmas,

Daddy

Thank you for sharing your story! It has touched me greatly. God does work in miraculous ways and even though we don't completely understand His plan we have to trust. You and your family are a great inspiration and proof of God's miracles.

I just saw the Youtube video and i thought that Kayliegh made it. I thought she stayed alive and strong. I feel tears fall from my face as you say how lucky you would think of yourself to be. I cannot imagine how upsetting it is for you to not have your 1 pound miracle to snuggle with you at night. But at least you're lucky enough to hold her in your heart and have the memories withe her that you do. I will keep you and your family in your prayers and Kayleigh in them aswell. I'm so sorry for the awful pain you've all had to go through.

I can not imagine the pain you live with. It makes me so sad I can not find the words to express it. So sorry for your loss.

Emelia said...

You're a truly loving father. You painted a beautiful, BEAUTIFUL picture with your kind words, and I'm sure Kayleigh is smiling down at you from wherever her sweet little soul has gone to. I'm not religious, but bless you and your family for years to come. You're truly the best of the best, and Kayleigh was always in the best of care with you.

Hello both to Kayleigh's mommy and daddy! I found the youtube video of her growing in the hospital, and I couldn't help but watch the whole thing. Of course I shed tears as I watched this beautiful angel go through all that she did and see how much love and support she had from you both as well as your other children. The video was so touching. She was such a fighter. I didn't know that she had gone to heaven until I came upon your blog. Of course I am so so sorry that you guys don't have her here physically. I was very sad to see that came about. As I am sure you both know she is still with you guys in spirit of course!! I am so proud of you all, and I am so proud of Kayleigh! My gosh, what an inspiration all of you are, especially her. What a beautiful, beautiful angel! Kayleigh taught me by watching the video that you have to be a fighter in life and that life is a miracle. You shouldn't ever take it for granted. No matter what you go through you can get through it! I appreciate her so much and thank you for sharing her video and for the blogging. You guys have touched my heart tonight! Much love to you and your family! (PS: My daughter's name is also Kaylee!) Neat, huh!

Your story is so touching. Your family has inspired 1,000,000+ people. You have inspired me to chronicle my life for my young daughter, if anything where to ever happen to me - she would only HEAR about me from other people.. by writing about my life - she will one day be able to read about me and see things through my eyes. What you have been through over the past few years is heartbreaking but please know your story does not go unnoticed. Kayleigh will live in millions of hearts and her story will continue to inspire others. Thank you for inspiring me.

It's time for the Heart Walk and I was trying to decide if I wanted to do it. Now that I have come across your story I feel that I have to. I will be walking for your beautiful daughter...your story is a very emotional and inspiring. Love and prayers to your family.

LaShonda said...

As I sit here an read this, it brings tears to my eyes. I know how it feels to lose someone special. I lost my mom when I was only 11. I didn't know what to do. All I want to say to the Freeman family is keep your heads up cause there is a little girl looking down on you all an as she looks down on you all she wants to see smiles from everyone. So hold your heads up an smile big. I'll keep you in prayers.

Cyndi Xu said...

Dear Adam and Aimee,
I am once again so touched by your gorgeous baby girl Kayleigh's heart warming story. I cried for I don't know how long but it was not because of the sadness, but because of the happiness that came through the video's of your sweet girl being embraced by her loving parents, knowing that however tiny she was, she definitely knew who Mommy and Daddy was and that they never left her side. Today baby Kayleigh probably is seated in the arms of Jesus and looking down from heaven with her beautiful eyes and a smile that brings sunshine on your lives and the lives of those who think about her and meet her through your blog. We all are passing through this life. Death is the beginning of eternal life with our Maker- Heavenly Father God. In everything that happens I know there is God's grace and His mercies. Someday we will all be united with the Lord and you will meet Kayleigh. We all will. I am looking forward to that. I maybe a stranger, but I just want you to know that you and your family are in my prayers, in my thoughts. You raised Baby Kayleigh with all your heart. I admire you both for your courage and endurance. Sending you all big hugs across from SriLanka. Luv, Cyndi

I have just read this story from beginning to almost the end. Wow. it's just... It makes me cry. I felt the pain but I also felt the triumphs in those moments where it seemed like she would improve. I don't always understand why the Lord does things like this, but this story helps me to remember how precious life is. I am praying for you guys because even though it's years later, prayer is important. Always. God bless you guys. Thank you for going through all of this and sharing it with the world. The Lord has really used your family.

Adam and Amy

Kayleigh was a blessing from god, and you got to sped 11 months with her. Just know that she is no longer suffering and that she gets to spend all of her days with our father Jesus Christ. You did everything that you could to make sure she was okay.... Don't be mad or resent god for that, he must have needed her more for some reason that was out of your hands, but I do know this that god does everything for a reason, we may not know the reason at the time it happens but eventually we will know why....
I am so sorry for your loss, I was hoping that she had pulled through after watching that video, it was very touching, makes you put your own life in perspective. Sometimes we take things for granted. Definitely opened my eyes to somethings in my own life, I will pray for you guys and that you find some peace in all of this....

Mel from Australia said...

Hi Adam, I came across one of the youtube videos for Kayleigh and after seeing her beautiful pictures I had to know more. Over the past few nights I have been up past 5am reading every single blog you posted from the beggining.

To say Kayleigh touched my heart is an understatement. No words could describe the feeling I had while reading her story. I shed so many tears for her, in both the sad times and the happy times. She was truly a beautiful baby and is now a gorgeous angel.

I admire you strength through every ordeal you faced. I could of never in a million years understood what it was like for you and I think Kayleighs story is the worst thing I've ever read but also the best thing I ever read.

I truly wish you all the best in life and that Kayleighs memory lives on.

Melissa Palmer said...

I bursted into tears from just the first paragraph.. I can't bring myself to finish reading this.. I could not come close to knowing how you guys got through this, you are a very strong family.. I hope you guys are doing ok.. Thanks for sharing your little angels story with us all..

Ur beautiful angel Kayleigh Anne has shone us all the strength of fighting not to waste one minute of precious time her story has brought back the loss of my nephew William lamarr Miller Jr. He weighed 1pound 3ozs born Aug.5,96 and he struggled to hold onto life for 19days he past away aug.24 96 the saturday my brother shoulda been out celerating his 21 st birthday as others have said I lost two babies to miscarriages and one to a tubal ligation pregnancy that nearly shattered me and was painful to get to a place where I wasn't angery anymore but as I told my brother I can't imjine ur loss and sarrow the incredible strength it takes to fight everyday in the hospital the joys and struggles of ur new baby and in the end to have lost that struggle as a family for ur little gift from God I stumbled on to the videos of ur story by accident too and was heartbroken to hear she was lost to u in the end. My aunt once told me Jesus is holding and rocking our precious babies in heaven he is our ultimate father even tho we were given them to raise as our own but changed his mind it hurts at the time and we can't fathom anyone being as good to our babies as us. I took it the wrong way but I see her point now. I'm rambling and I'm sorry my heart goes out to u and ur family and u will have that chance to embrace ur Kayleigh again one day. And another tidbit my brothers next baby was born two days before Thanksgiving in 98 and they named her Kaylea ray. And she is healthy. And I have two daughters also who r healthy now but nearly lost both at birth for seprate complicatings but they say things happen for a reason I believe mine was to never take my children now for granted. And I try hard not to they r our perfect gifts to spoil love and raise them with a strong but loving hand I'm sorry I said so much I just needed to think back and remember the details I'm sorry they spilled over into ur page. Best of luck to ur family and thank you again for sharing ur incredible story with us

Michael Henry said...

Hi Freeman Family. I am Michael and I am a father of 7 month old baby girl. I was just amazed how strong both of you. I have my problems in life on how to let my child grow up due to financial problems. And now after seeing the video you posted in youtube, it seems that my struggle is no a cent worth for both of you. Thanks for this share of struggles and hope you implanted to my heart. Love bonded you not just for a moment but for a very very long suffering that have gone unto your life. I'm so sad that Kayleigh is not with you now but still keep on praying because she is always listening to you like a song that keeps her smile. Godbless to all of you and keep strong.

I watched your video, and read your article about Your Daughter Kayleigh. I thought you did something that was very touching to watch. I'm so very sorry for your loss, but your gain is yet to come! Always, always look up, before you decide to look down. If your little girl were still here, she would have, and is very proud of the kind of Dad you were to her.

Sincerely Yours, Joseph C. Richardson

Can I just say, I am so sorry. I'm actually crying right now. I watched your YouTube video and I know how it feels. My nan recently passed away from cancer and I cry all the time. I gasped at every time it said she had surgery and sighed in relief every time it said she made it through. I am only a kid and my mom said to me if you prey then god will pass the message on. He is looking after her and I allways believe that although you cannot see her she can see you. And remember she's not gone forever. One day in the future you will be re-united with Kayleigh. And she is allways with you in your heart. I send my thoughts to you and your family and for your kids I know how it feels to loose someone you love because I went through it in may. Remember you only live once so I know it's hard but try to forget what's happened and get on with your life and have fun with family and friends. I will be back to check up on your blog and I will continue to support you through this sad time. I know it was a while ago but you can't forget the bad things in life even though I can't remember what I did a few hours ago. Enjoy life and remember , she's allways with you... In your heart xxx

Dear freeman family and angel kayleigh,
I want nothing more than to have a child
Of my own, a sweet miracle to hold and cherish forever.
Your amazing story has inspired me so much To appreciate what I already have. Yes, I still long for a
Child, but I am beginning to realize just how blessed
I am to even be alive. Your video has touched me beyond belief and is a true inspiration. Kayleigh is truly a miracle and you may wish she never was born, but think of her little hands, holding yours, how precious. You are truly blessed and I admire your courage more than you could ever imagine. God bless you and your lovely family, I wish you all the beat forever and ever. Xox, age13

I saw her story on YouTube and I wanted you to know your whole family has a place in my heart. I was just like your angel I only weighted two pounds and they didn't expect me to live. Now I'm a nurse working in the mother baby unit and I give you a lot of respect to both of you because I know how hard it is to go through this. May god continue to bless your family and your little angel. One day you will reunite with her and it will be magical. Stay strong.

Wow u guys. This story inspires me soo much. I'm soo sorry about your loss. I just found out about kayleigh on YouTube and once I saw the story I came right to the website. You guys are soo strong and can't imagine going through something like that and I'm not even a parent. I'm a eleven year old girl that has never experienced anything like that in my life. This story made me cry and I rarely cry about things like this, but now kayleigh is in a better place. I guess god decided it was her time to stop suffering and be in a better place. That baby is now my inspiration to never stop or quit fighting for something because survived alot of things a grown man or woman can't survive. Everything has a time...a time to be born, the time u learn how to ride your bike for the first time, the time to start school, the time to end school, the time to get married...so on and so forth and the time to die. That was her time to come and go because that was the way it was meant to be. Keep going strong Freeman family!!! I know that Kayleigh is probably looking down on y'all everyday smiling at you knowing that she is a lucky girl to have such parents. :)

I watched the video, and i have been crying my eyes out! But my mom always tells me this when i think of my older sister, who was born with just a brain stem: when a baby passes, that means it was so pure and perfect, she didn't have to go through the trials on earth. Instead, be so happy that they don't ever have to know sadness. God bless, and you are now in my prayers! I am 14 years old and the oldest of 5 children. Please email me at bellgarr326@gmail.com. :)

I've been sitting here reading your blogs with tears flowing down my cheeks as I hold one of my four precious daughters. I can't imagine the pain that you have experienced, but I am so thankful that you always saw that God had His own plan for little Kayleigh. She and your family have touched my heart so deeply, and you will continue to be an inspiration to me to strive to let God lead me as a Christian parent.

Hi. I just have happen to find your video of Kayleigh on YouTube.. and want to let you know that how strong her story touched me.
I cried. I cried with tears.
Then, my baby boy on the crib started to wake up and cry. I rushed to him, and he saw that his mommy is crying. He then stopped to cry and stretched out his arms to me, as if, he was trying to comfort me! I cried again.
Because until that moment, I was so tired and exhausted from busy motherhood. My boy is 10 month old. 10 months.
I ashamed to myself that I forgot how fortunate I am .. my boy is super healthy and strong and beautiful. And is keep thriving so well.
I must tell you your sweet little baby is a real angel. She reminds me how blessed I am, and, thanks to her, I am a happy mother again. Therefore my boy will be happier baby, too ;-)
Thank you for help us and inspired me.
Blessing from Israel,
K

I watched Kayleigh's story on youtube and i just had to comment. My heart broke when i found out she had passed. I actually felt physically ill and then i read your blogs and cried as if she was my own child. My heart just aches for you. Please know how much love, prayers and support you have. She is a precious angel who had more love in her beautiful but brief life than most people have in a lifetime. Baby Kayleigh is in Heaven with our Lord, and i am sure she is smiling down on you and making sure He is taking extra special care of you! You are a beautiful, amazing and courageous family.

I have watched your story 3 times now and each time I had, it gave me tears majorly! I feel like I wish I was there holding kayleigh and kissing her and everything as if she was my own. I turned to my daughter who is one, sleeping beside me I woke her by kissing and cuddling saying how much I love her! It made me feel greatful that I have her in my life! Your baby truely is a great blessing! She's a beautiful angle! I didn't know her but I feel a destrought feeling of missing her in me that may sound weird but very true! :( ... God bless you and your family baby girl! Xo

I had just watched the video of your beautiful angle. I couldn't help but cry. She truly was a gift from god. As a mother of two I just feel empathy for your family. When my son was 6 weeks old he under went a minor surgery and it was right before hurrricane sandy hit. I couldn't sleep the whole time because we had no power and no where to go I can't imagine what your family went through . I always keep telling myself life throws you curve balls to keep you and make you a stronger person. Just always keep in mind that she may not be physcaly with you but she will allways be in your hearts and memory. She is with god our father making him smile just as she made your whole family smile and she's running around playing with those lost 20 children from ct. Also when your down and out just always remember all the happy time your shared with her forget all the wires and tubes. I understand holidays are always the hardest but they pass don't ever listen if anyone says "your still not over it?" She was your daughter and the greving process takes longer for some people rather then others. Its normal to still be sad and upset she's not around. I hope this helps a little bit and if you or your wife ever need to just talk and get something out you can email me at ajssoftball@msn.com I check my email everyday.

Aw, I just watched the youtube video. She was such a beautiful soul and she had gotten so big! The parents now have one amazing angel looking after them til they meet again <3 This video was very touching and i'm so sorry for your loss but you will be with her again one day <3 And until then you've got the best little angel looking over you and your family <3

I say your you tube video and it had me crying. She's so beautiful and she is such an example of why we shouldnt give up. I used to think my life was hard untill I realized im lucky I didnt have to go through that much when I was born. God bless her and you're wonderful family. <3 xoxo

I realize I am typing this years after Kayleigh was born, but I just watched the video of her and her family as she grew the 120 days she was in the hospital. That story was very touching to me. I do not have any children (yet), but i know it must have been really tough to go through the things Kayleigh's parents went through. Know that even though this was years ago I am praying for your loss.

OMG! Today is the first time I read about Kayleigh. My heart goes out to the Freeman family. Your precious baby girl is truly a blessing from God! And I say 'is' not 'was' because she is in heaven right now making the angels laugh and being the most precious angel of all. She is not past tense, but now in the present and she has so much going for her right now sitting in the presence of her Heavenly Father waiting for her mommy and daddy to join her. I don't know you personally, but just reading and watching your family made me feel close to you and her. You are and have been so blessed. I'm excited for you to know that you will reunite with her very soon! My prayers are with you Freeman family!!! May God Bless you and stay strong!

I just had to step away from the internet after watching the video on youtube. Your little angel SO touched my heart that i do not think i will ever be able to forget her. I thought she made it...not till i went to your website did i realize she passed away. The words "i am so sorry" just seem not enough but it is all I have. May God bless and keep your family.
