"Getting back on the road and back into daily life without River has not been easy in the slightest," she wrote. "Every single thing reminds me of him, and all I can think about is how he would love exploring and seeing all that we are seeing. I see his name everywhere, I see little red-headed toddlers everywhere. I miss his silly personality and his bright light. I see his face in our other kiddos."
She continued: "I have this pit in my stomach constantly, because I’m trying to make life as normal as possible for our other 2 incredible kiddos, London and Lincoln, while hurting so bad inside. I look around at everyone else and wonder if anyone is going through something like we are."
The couple previously discussed the role religion and spirituality has played in their grieving process. Amber added that "dumb little things don't matter anymore," just family and faith. In what felt like a special sign, she added, the dinosaur in question was believed to have died near a river, in a town now called 'Faith.' "
"Open your eyes and you will see signs all around you," Amber Smith wrote in her post. "We think just maybe, Riv is having the best time of his life in Heaven with this (dinosaur)."
