Adriana Michele Gibson
Born to Heaven on 4/30/97
~ Adriana's Story ~
On April 30, 1997 I was living on my own after leaving Steve and was elated about the baby that was growing inside of me.
I came home to my apartment at 7:45 in the evening, and as I went to unlock the door he approached from behind me
and grabbed my hair pulling me backwards.
Cussing and yelling at me that he would kill me... I tried to kick him. That made him even madder. He let go of my hair
and grabbed me by the shoulders, shaking me and slapping me, he called me outrageous names. He shoved me down the steps,
and I rolled down them. As I lay at the bottom, I knew something was wrong.
A neighbor heard the commotion and came to help me. He called 9-1-1, and they took me to the hospital. Adriana was born at 8:35.
The doctor said that the placenta had been ripped away from the uterus wall, and that was the cause of death.
I had two broken ribs, cuts and bruises, but my baby was gone.
He only got 6 months in jail and 5 years probation, and that was for domestic battery.
The judge said - referring to my baby - that since it did not take a breath of air, it was not a life.
Adriana Michele, you were wanted if only by me,
I could not protect you, for that I am sorry.
He hated me for loving you,
to end your life he wanted me too.
I told him no and you grew inside me,
...7 wonderful months until tragedy.
He pushed me down too many stairs,
at the bottom I layed in despair.
You got your wings not long after,
cried when the doctor said "its too late we cant save her"
I held you tight for one long look,
an innocent life he took.
In a cradle of lace you now sleep,
at Jesus' feet.
Please dont cry
as the angels sing you a lullaby.
I will hold you again in my arms,
but for now you'll forever be in my heart
Child of Heaven
Written by R.K. Cecil
Child of heaven come to earth,
You just could not stay.
This world could not hold you
And so soon you went away.
Like a rare and precious rose,
Your lovely soul can't die.
Budded here upon the earth,
Now it will bloom on high.
You are a child of heaven
And will forever be
In the arms of Jesus
For all eternity.
This special Valentine's Day gift for Angel Adriana is from my friend Marie.

There is a special Angel in Heaven
that was a part of me.
It is not where I wanted her
but where God wanted her to be.
She was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though she is in Heaven
She isn't very far.
She touched the hearts of many
like only an Angel can do.
I would've held her every minute
if the end I ever knew.
So I send this special message
to the Heavens up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send her all My Love...

But A Moment
You'll always be my child - I think of you each day,
Even though you must remain so very far away.
A love as strong as this, I've never felt before;
But you had to go away, up through heaven's door.
You'll never have to suffer, or feel pain or hate,
just peace and love and happiness - God has given you this fate.
I hope that you can feel just how much I care;
And, when my days are over, in a flash - I will be there.
Pure unbounding joy! We'll never have to part.
You'll be right by my side - and not just in my heart.
But, until that day, when my dream is real -
I think I understand, just how I should feel...
"Mom, I am fine!" this must be what you would say -
"Please don't be sad, we'll meet again one day:
I'm with God above - so don't cry for me,
Our parting is but a moment compared to eternity.

An angel in the book of life
Wrote down an infant's birth
And mentioned as he closed the book
........too beautiful for earth.
