Kyle Nathaniel Rackley: born into heaven on 12/17/2012 and into our arms (hopefully) tomorrow.

It’s what our sweet Kyle, “Gift from God”, has now.


It’s what we have been graciously given.

Then it was time to test out the heartbeat. It worked perfectly. For ten glorious seconds, she could hear her brother's heartbeat. Anytime she wants.

Even with the delivery we’re facing in the morning.


And it’s what we’re so very thankful for now.

    I too am sorry for your loss and grateful that you shared your journey with all of us. I can say for myself, at least, that I feel like I”m somehow a better person for being along for the journey. Your strength and faith are remarkable and when I lose sight of those things I think of you and your courage. Prayers are heading your way for you, your precious Kyle, your two lovely daughters, your husband and your friends and families.

    My heart breaks for you, though I have only just heard about your situation through a mutual friend, please be assured of our earnest prayers and heartfelt sympathy. We know that God makes no mistakes and that someday, our loving Father will gather us all together and we shall meet Kyle from the place he has enjoyed the broken worship and fellowship of our gracious Father. May God hold your hand and your heart secure in His Son until that day.

    Kim and Chris, our prayers are with you during this time. I know the Lord is with you and Baby Kyle will be waiting for you to join him in heaven one day! That song was wonderful! Did you write that or find it somewhere?

    Elijah and I are praying for you all. And I just wanted to thank you (and praise Him!!) for what a blessing you have been to me today, you have no idea! Tears streaming while listening to the recording of Kim playing the piano and you’re daughter singing “Peace”. I don’t believe I have ever been so moved by a song and know that it will always resonate in my mind, just as it was sang. May God comfort u as only He can and I praise Him for your giving, sweet spirits!! We love you!
