MICHELLE'S MAMA & DADDY DESERPATELY MISSES THEIR LITTLE GIRL. SHE WAS OUR WORLD, OUR LIFE, OUR BEST FRIEND, OUR YOUNGEST CHILD.
WE HAD OVER 40 FOSTER CHILDREN, MICHELLE BEING 1 OF THE LAST 1'S WE GOT. SHE WAS 2 MONTHS OLD WHEN WE GOT HER AND ONLY WEIGHED 4LBS. 5OZ. WE SPENT THE BIGGEST PART OF THE 11 YEARS SHE LIVED IN VANDERBILT CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL, BUT AS WITH EVERYTHING TO DO WITH MICHELLE, WE HAD FUN. WHEN SHE WOULD BE SO VERY SICK, SHE WOULD SAY,"DON'T WORRY MAMA, I WILL BE OK."
WHEN I PUT HER TO BED THE NIGHT SHE DIED, SHE SAID, "MAMA, DO YOUR PROMISE IF I GO TO SLEEP, I WILL BE OK?" I WONDER TO THIS DAY, DID SHE KNOW? MICHELLE WAS AN EXCEPTIONAL CHILD AND WE FEEL GOD LENT US AN ANGEL ON EARTH TO SHOW TRULY WHAT UNCONDITIONAL LOVE WAS. SHE WAS 2 WHEN HER ADOPTION WAS FINALIZED AND IF WE HAD IT ALL TO DO OVER, WE WOULD DO IT IN A HEARTBEAT. WE LOVED HER IN LIFE, WE LOVE HER IN DEATH. LIFE WITHOUT MICHELLE IS DIFFICULT, BUT WE KNOW AS THEY LAY OUR BODIES NEXT TO HER'S, SHE AND HER DADDY & I WILL BE REJOICING IN HEAVEN.
THE PICTURE HERE WAS TAKEN AT THE DEDICATION OF THE MICHELLE WALKER TEDDYBEAR FOUNDATION KICKOFF. WE STARTED WITH OVER $600 AND 300 TEDDYBEARS. ACCEPTING THE BEARS AND MONEY IS THE FEMA DIRECTOR IN HICKMAN CO. TN. TERRY CLOUD.
I truly want to thank everyone who visits our Michelle. We were recently offline during a move from Ohio back to Tn. and I was overwhelmed when we came back to FAG and saw how many of you continued to visit this sweet little girl during our absence. God Bless you all and Thank you all so very much for remembering Michelle and keeping her spirit alive!!
