and they admitted me to the hospital. From that point forward a band of angels surrounded my family. The deacon from my parent’s church came and prayed with us. My incredible nurse has a son with the same name we had chosen. My midwife stayed five hours past her shift to be with us, and came back when he was born. My family came to be by our side to comfort us.
Kai William Mack was born at 11:30 on November 1, 2016. He wasn’t breathing, but he was otherwise perfect. We held him all night and into the next day. We will never forget holding his tiny body in our arms and admiring his perfect little fingers and toes. It was so comforting to see him dressed in his gown and wrapped in a knitted blanket. Rachel’s Gift was with us from the moment we laid eyes on Kai, through our support group, and today in our most cherished keepsakes of our son.
We miss Kai William so much and love him deeply. We constantly feel his presence all around us. Ever since Kai was born and went to heaven, my husband and I see ladybugs all the time, in our house, in our cars, in the rain and even in the winter. We even found one on his little sister’s ultrasound. We love you Kai, our little Love Bug, happy birthday buddy. Till we meet again.
