Layla Grace

Warning: This is a sad post (at least to me). I can't stop thinking about this little girl. I literally check their Twitter page every few hours, and I cry (more like sob) every time I look at it. In my living room. In my office at work. {Embarrassing.} I just don't get it. I know I never will. I'm sure Layla's mother would trade place with her in a heart beat. I would. I didn't understand unconditional love until I had Trent. I mean, I love my husband dearly, but would I die for him? I don't know. Probably not. {Gasp.} But I would die for Trent right now. Without question. There's just something about looking at his innocent face and wanting him to have a full life. And knowing I would do anything to give him that. But it's not always that simple. Sometimes we can't will things to change. I hope (and believe) something good will come from her short life. Celebrities are tweeting about her left and right, trying to raise money and awareness for Neuroblastoma. People's relationships with God are growing from reading their blog. 2 very wonderful things. But I know her mother would rather have her. I would. One last thing - while I have your attention - please don't forget to check in on and pray for baby Jordan. She is another precious baby girl fighting Neuroblastoma, and her mom is a lifelong family friend. Not to tell you what to do, but please remember both Layla and Jordan tonight and give your families an extra hug and kiss tonight.

I too can't stop following Layla Grace's blog. I cry every day for her also. Being a new mommy I just can't wrap my head around what they are going through. I pray two and three times a day for their family. Praying for a miracle but understanding that god has a plan for little miss Layla Grace.
