To send prayers, peaceful thoughts, or whatever it is you believe or follow to a family who needs peace?
A gorgeous 2 year old who has a massive cancerous tumor (Stage 4 Neuroblastoma) in her abdomen. After months of fighing, her battle is about to end. I don't know how I manage to stumble across these things but that's kinda just what happens in the blogging world. And with Layla Grace, I follow mostly through Twitter (I don't even have an acct so how I stumbled across this story really is a mystery.)
First, I found sweet Kate.
A beautiful blonde sweetie who is battling a brain tumor.
And then there is Jonah.
Oh, what a beautiful young boy who was born with an extremely rare genetic skin disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa.
And now it's Layla Grace that I find myself thinking about, as she sleeps and her family waits for her to take her final breath.
I find myself thinking about these kids throughout the day. I don't know why they are under my skin and in my thoughts. I've never met them. Chances are good I never will meet them. In a world with millions of people, I haven't a clue why my path crossed these stories nor WHY I end up finding the stories that bring me to tears. And put me on my knees by my child's bed as I thank God for a healthy, strong child.
In my heart, I know God laid out the path for these kiddos. And the path of their families.
I ache to share their stories. Just as God intended.
But, for now, I ask you to pray for peace for Layla Grace's Mommy and Daddy. They need it.
