I don't know your family but our family experienced the loss of a young toddler and the feelings from the horrible loss. I agree that "Footprints in the Sand" will be a comfort. She will live forever in your hearts as the precious angel that she was and will always be. God bless you and keep you with every memory of her short life. Angels will take good care of her.
