My name is Andrae Kelly. I live in Pocatello, ID with my little family of 5. I am married to a kind and loving husband, Mark. I am a mother to three beautiful children. Our first-born child, Miles, now watches over us from Heaven while our second child, Vivian, keeps us running every day and our third child, Clara, came to us during a difficult time in our lives after losing our first son. Each of our children are special blessings to our family.
We lost our sweet son Miles October 15, 2012. Miles passed away from complications from a near drowning accident while at a family reunion in Park City, Utah. He was four years old and one month to the day of his accident. After two terribly long and hard days in the hospital Mark and I had to make the hardest decision of our lives; to let our son move on to his greater mission in the spirit world. Miles took his last breath in this mortal world in our arms. It was such a sacred moment we will never forget.
Losing Miles has been the hardest trial of our lives. Daily we find ourselves trying to pick up the pieces of our broken hearts and try and make sense of our new life. Although we can no longer hold Miles in our arms, we feel him close and try to live our lives in a manner that would make him proud. We look forward to the day we will be a whole and complete family again; with each of our children around us embraced in love.
Through our loss, we are learning many new lessons in life. Many of which we may never have learned otherwise. We truly are changed in many, many ways by the loss of our son. We are daily striving to become better people, to love more, and not take anything for granted, while trying to navigate through our sorrow, grief and heartache from the loss of our son.
