Description of I Will Carry You: The Sacred Dance of Grief and Joy by Angie Smith

Angie Smith was eighteen weeks pregnant with her fourth daughter, Audrey Caroline, when doctors discovered conditions leaving Audrey "incompatible with life." Faced with the decision whether to terminate the pregnancy, Angie and her husband chose to carry Audrey for as long as she had life. This began what turned out to be three months of loving and carrying a little girl that was not expected to live more than a few minutes. Audrey Caroline lived for over two hours, weighing three pounds, two ounces. Yet, in the midst of the sorrow of loss, there was still joy. Angie weaves the faith-filled story of Audrey Caroline with a biblical story of hope to help us all to understand how better to cope with loss and disappointment. In I Will Carry You, Audrey's mom tells the sweet story of her baby girl who changed the world. Be part of Audrey's story as you hear of this mom, her daughter, and the family's faith - you will be among the changed

5 StarsBeautiful!
I first learned of Todd and Angie's story when I heard Selah's gorgeous song, "I Will Carry You," written for then-unborn Audrey. I had recently delivered a perfect baby girl, so my heart was extra sensitive to their loss and I grieved for them. I picked up this book to learn a little more about their incredible story, and I am so glad I did. Not only is it a beautiful tribute to sweet Audrey Caroline, who only lived in this world for a few short hours after her birth, but it is also a powerful reminder that each day is a gift, and that Christ our Sustainer will see us through even the most devastating of circumstances. Though I have never experienced the profound loss of a child, I was deeply touched by Angie's insights into life, death, grief, and the restoration that comes through hope in Jesus Christ. Angie is very transparent about the grief and subsequent depression she experienced after the loss of her daughter, but she also paints an encouraging picture of hope - a picture that says, "Hang in there and cling to Jesus, because although you can't imagine it right now, you will enjoy life again." This book would be a powerful tool and source of empathy for anyone working through the loss of a child - whether that child was lost in the womb, in delivery, in childhood, or even in adulthood. Angie's husband also shares at the end of the book how he and his wife grieved very differently, so there is a guy's perspective included for husbands. Todd and Angie Smith are truly an incredible couple and handled their devastating situation with such grace and godliness. I was inspired by this book and highly recommend it!
