Heaven Gained an Angel

Yesterday, after a 2 week battle with ATRT, on my brother and sister-in-laws 5th anniversary our sweet Kai went to be with the Lord. The last two weeks have been a complete blur and although we don’t understand why, it brings me so much peace that he is in heaven where there is no more tears, no more pain, no more tumors, and no more cancer (Revelation 21:4). He is playing with all the Thomas trains he wants and having a blast with other sweet little ones who have gone too early. I know our time here on earth is so short and temporal and the time we will get to spend when we are in heaven with Kai is eternal.

I know and trust God has been working in this story and His glory will continued to be revealed throughout the weeks, months, and years to come. I am so thankful for this little cutie pie and the impact he had on my life. Love wins.

    He is a doll baby and my heart breaks for you and your family. I know that God did not want this to happen but He will use what the devil meant for harm into something far better than we can hope for or even imagine. Love you girl and let me know if there is anything I can do.

    It just wrecks me to know that his life is gone from us so soon. But I know being absent from the body means he’s present with The Lord and for that I give thanks. I am so sorry for you and your family’s lost Caroline. I pray that peace washes over you all as you grieve. I love you!

    Bless your dear heart, Caroline! You have been on my mind so much the past several days as little Kai’s homecoming story unfolded. Many prayers are being prayed for you and Kai’s parents and your family. Sending big hugs to you tonight and trusting Jesus to hold you especially close. So thankful I was finally able to get on to your blog to leave a comment. If you need me, I am here. 🙂

    I was in the gym yesterday when I learned of this news and started bawling my eyes out right in the middle of the floor. I have never even met Kai, but I know how much you loved him Caroline. My first thoughts were of absolute heartbreak for you, his parents and the entire family, but then thankfulness that his tiny little body is free from any pain and that his heavenly birth was swift. There is no pain in heaven. When you enter heaven yourself you will know you’re there, because I have no doubt he’ll be right there waiting to greet you. Praying for closure and a peace that passes all understanding for you all. XO

I will be praying for your family during this time. I am thankful that you are finding comfort in The Lord and knowing that sweet Kai is no longer suffering. Heaven gained a very special angel and your family now has a very sweet, special guardian angel watching over all of you. Lots of love and prayers to Kai’s parents and your whole family.

    Caroline, I’m so glad that your family, as believers in Christ, are taking the posture of celebrating Kai’s life instead of being overwhelmed by grief! Praying that you and all who knew Kai will be strengthened and comforted by God’s love in the coming days.

    So sorry for your loss, Caroline. This verse has helped me recently: “But now the Lord my God has given me rest on every side; there is neither adversary nor misfortune.” 1 Kings 5:4 Kai’s pain is gone now, and although your family is grieving, I know finding hope in the Lord makes the days bearable.

As hard as it is, I love your attitude, heaven really did gain an angel and what a great a place to be! No more pain and you’re right, all the Thomas trains he wants. Plus, He’s with God, it doesn’t get any better than that! Continuing to pray for you guys, please let me know if there’s anything I can do.

    I have returned to the CB site three times today, just trying to read some of it, but it’s far too painful. I just have tears running down my face…and I don’t even know this sweet little boy. If I have this much pain just reading his story, I cannot imagine how much pain those of you who love him are experiencing. My heart is just beyond broken for you guys.
