No other song can make me cry like this one. Written and sang by Selah, the song is a true account of one of Selah’s members, Todd and his wife Angie, who lost their baby girl at 32 weeks gestation. They delivered a baby girl named Audrey who lived for two and a half hours. She had many health conditions and although they knew for most of the pregnancy she might not ever survive, they left it in God’s hands. Like them, I had many plans for our daughter Bella. I was looking forward to all the big bows, the pretty pink dresses and everything that entails a little princess. I longed to hold her and kiss her constantly, to rock her to sleep, to hear her little feet running across the house. I loved her more than life itself, but there is someone who loved her more. When we lost Bella, we tried to figure out the reason why. The only thing that brought us comfort was knowing that God chose us to carry her. He chose us to represent Him during our storm. So for that I will be thankful, that he allowed me to carry her. He allowed me to carry one of his sweet angels. She rests in Jesus’ arms now and I know she is in a better place. She will forever be a part of me, and I did not just carry her for nine months, but I will carry her in my heart for all my life.
There were photographs I wanted to take
So I will carry you
Such a short time
I`ve shown her photographs of time beginning
I will carry you
