Baby Robert Alvin Kingbird

October 14, 2021 ~ October 14, 2021

Baby Robert Alvin Kingbird, 32 weeks gestation, was born and began his spiritual journey on Thursday, October 14th, 2021, in Bemidji, Minnesota. He is the son of Rosalind Kingbird and Gerald Vos-Cloud, Sr.

Six months I carries you in my tummy, kicking and moving around letting me know that you were there, not knowing the days ahead we wouldn't be able to share. My heart is broken and aches knowing you won't have a place here on earth with us. But I can see why the Creator wanted you close to him. You were the little angel sent to me to help me find my way. We share the same heartbeat just like the drum of our people. So, when I dance again in that circle it will be for you. You changed my life and taught me a good lesson about life; it's too short sometime and in a split second it would drastically be changed. Crazy how the Creator works his wonders. Mommy loves you.
