When God gives you someone as beautiful as Mariah, it's His decision when she gets to go home to Him. The four months He let us have her were too wonderful to describe. Mariah came into this world flying, she taught us how to overcome obstacles within ourselves and love each other. She gave each of us a reason to smile, and to cry. In four months she met hundreds of people, leaving a lasting impression on each one. We now have an angel looking down at us. She is smiling and giggling, amazed at the amount of love we are all showering upon her and her parents. We dream big for our little girl in Heaven and look forward to the day we see her again.
