Amber Smith, the wife of country music singer Granger Smith, kicked off the new year by reflecting on her faith and sharing how it has helped her family get through each day following the tragic death of the couple’s 3-year-old son, River.
She wrote a lengthy Instagram post reflecting on the emotional toll of the last year.
“2019 — The year that brought me to my knees. The year our beautiful red-headed boy turned 3 and went Home. The year that same sweet boy saved two other lives. The year that broke my heart into pieces but also tempered my spirit,” the grieving mother captioned a slideshow of photos of her family on Instagram.
The first image in the photo gallery is an illustration of the Smith family holding hands. Amber and Granger are holding two of their children, London, 8, and Lincoln, 5, and standing next to her is an image of Jesus holding the hand of their late son, River.
Amber’s post went on to highlight some of the family’s milestones in the midst of tragedy last year, including Lincoln starting kindergarten and her daughter losing three teeth.
She also talked about how she and her country star husband, who’s also known by his alter ego Earl Dibbles Jr., “vowed to not let anything tear our family apart.”
Amber maintained that 2019 was the year she became closer to God than “I’ve ever been.”
