Our Angel Isla

Isla Niamh Anderson 
23/08/2011 - 10/10/2011

Sometimes a baby comes along
And touches your heart.
You pray, your heart goes out to the family
You sit by your computer and wait
Wait for hope, for news, for light
You share with others
You search for ways to help them
And you have been here before
You have prayed, you have hoped
You have seen babies
Who have become angels
And its hard, to still have hope
When you can see the baby is walking the path
Of angels before her
But still you hope, and you pray.
Then the news came yesterday
And still it hasn't processed
That this amazingly brave little baby girl
is not here.
She has gone, there is no more sedation,
no more procedures, no more pain
She is at peace with our Lord and Heavenly Father
And we need to hang on to that
And we need to put our arms around her parents
For Lauren and Matt have a long road to travel
And we will be there
As we have in this journey

Matt and Lauren have asked that if you wish to, a balloon can be released on Friday the 21st October to celebrate Isla's life.


  1. utterly beautiful Kylie.... so sensitive and heartfelt.
    No words can make Matt and Laurens journey pain free but i sincerely hope that words such as these will offer them some comfort somewhere down the line.

    That is beautiful Kylie, I have been following Isla's story after you mentioned it on your blog. Although I didn't know them, have been thinking about them every day and will continue to do so.
    What a brave and strong family x
